Hi there..Im on 5.1 and every time I try to install a program using ftp, I usually get about 97% of it downloaded and get this error:
450 Socket write to client timed-out. 9838592 bytes received in 41:21 (3.87 KB/s) 421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection.
That's a drag. Fortunately, however, ftp supports resuming interrupted downloads, as per the man page:
reget remote-file [local-file] Reget acts like get, except that if local-file exists and is smaller than remote-file, local-file is presumed to be a par- tially transferred copy of remote-file and the transfer is continued from the apparent point of failure. This command is useful when transferring very large files over networks that are prone to dropping connections.
