|Is there any way to resume download from ftp site?|
I know for sure that ftp site supports resuming, but my vfp program always starts from beginning. Thanks.

Take a look at the InternetSetFilePointer function and code sample "Using InternetSetFilePointer when resuming interrupted download from the Internet" in this reference.

|Be aware that FtpGetFile() needs a Windows server to operate properly. In other words you can get the file if, and only if, the server on wich the file is located is a Windows-based server.|

|Mihai - that's not exactly true. I'm retrieving and putting files from an IBM mainframe (3390) and several Sun Unix boxes as well (both internal and external to me). You can not however, easily retrieve file sizes prior to 'getting' the file due to differences in the file systems.|

|You're right, Bill, it works on other machines too. Unfortunately I've had make a little (big) mistake in the call of FtpGetFile() , and , somehow , my test program failed to download a file from a linux machine, but succeeded doing the same thing from a windows one; trying to figure what is happening, I've found in MSDN the following requirements for FtpGetFile(): Server: Requires Windows Server "Longhorn", Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000 Server, or Windows NT Server 4.0. (see http://windowssdk.msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384157.aspx )|
So I thought that this was the case, and I've made the previous post.
