uhh....it's faster if you have like 10 users downloading at a time but more than that (if you have a lot of people who visit and download from your ftp server)...http is the better option because it doesn't slow down like ftp as the number of downloaders grow
Well, if your price lists are bigger than 1.5 MB, then you should work with ftp because it's faster. But... if your price lists are only a TXT of 200k, then you should use http because visitors'll have to wait for the ftp server to login.

We only get about 5 downloads a day of price lists (less than 200K), so for the time being I'm going to keep them on the http side for the main download link. I will give the ftp location in the future as a backup though.
By the way, you may be able to help with the next topic I posted - "attachements to sendmail", the next step....
