Mark Allman, Shawn Ostermann. Multiple Data Connection FTP Extensions. Technical Report TR-19971, Ohio University Computer Science, February 1997.


The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) has been shown to yield low utilization over networks with high delay*bandwidth products (DBP). We have extended FTP to assist in the study of such networks. The extensions to FTP outlined in this paper help better utilize these high DBP networks which can lead to insights into transport protocol modifications that will help all applications better utilize these channels.
