    I encountered this page while googling about the difference btw ftp and http in downloading files.
    Your article, as any article I read in this subject, doesn`t specify which protocol is better for downloading, say, a Linux image, when both are available.

      If you are using Linux I recommend using rsync or rtunnel to transfer file or images .

      If you dont have those services running you just have to install then and run them

    This was a very good article explaining the differences between http and ftp. I do some web hosting and maintenance and use an ftp program.
