Restart partial transfers?

Hi Alessandro,

Again - great work on the library. It's working well for me with the new windows-based certificate functionality.

One hopefully small request. Would it be possible to extend your library so it either supports REST directly or APPE can be given a starting offset? The only thing missing is ability to restart partial transfers. Please let me know..
Thanks again!

Hi Mark,

REST command support will be added very soon in GetFile.

About APPEND, it is already available using a lower level method:

public FTPStream AppendFile(string remoteFileName)

by reading from a file starting from a given offset and writing to the FTPStream.

GetFileTransferSize(...) can be used (by now) to get the remote file size.

This will also be included in the higher level file transfer methods.

Hi Alessandro,

Thanks for the pointer.. FTPStream object works great!

This library has been very reliable for me.

Unfortunately, many FTP servers are not.

Is there any news of when the REST command is to be implemented? or if it has, how do I use it?
