The FAQ moved to the Wiki a while ago, this link needs to be updated to:

Probably, but I've never done it myself and I'm not aware of any code in ICS to
help, maybe someone here can contribute some helpers?

To save time, you should look at my File Transfer Components, which are high
level versions of the low level ICS FTP and HTTP, which are much easier to use
and mean a lot less code:


The FTP component does handle retries, resume of partial downloads and a
progress bar with time estimates for the session. I'm afraid the HTTP version
is less complex and progress information is more limited, it was mainly
designed to parse an HTML page, find file links and download them.  There is a
compiled demo program so you can try all this without coding anything.
