Multiple stream file transfer protocol optimized for large files
bbFTP is a file transfer software. It implements its own transfer protocol, which is optimized for large files larger than 2GB and secure as it does not read the password in a file and encrypts the connection information. bbFTP main features are
* Encoded username and password at connection * SSH and Certificate authentication modules * Multi-stream transfer * Big windows as defined in RFC1323 * On-the-fly data compression * Automatic retry * Customizable time-outs * Transfer simulation * AFS authentication integration * RFIO interface
bbFTP is open-source software, released under the GNU General Public License. It was written by Gilles Farrache at IN2P3 Computing Center in Lyon, France.
