#1135: Enable Concurrent/Multiple FTP Connections

     Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new    
 Priority:  high         |   Milestone:         
Component:  ftp          |     Version:  2.7.3  
 Severity:  major        |    Keywords:         
 There are numerous FTP clients, mostly for windows that already do this. I
 think a default number of FTP connections, that *ANY* server admin would
 not object to is, 2 connections. In fact another popular open source
 windows ftp program, Filezilla uses 2 connections by default. If you are
 connecting to a private server (company webserver or shared public
 hosting) it shouldn't matter the number of connections because there are a
 limited number of people who have access.

 When this feature is implemented it would be advisable to have the ability
 to change the number of connections in the Properties menu. Also of course
 make it smart enough not to try to download the same file 2x, if you try
 to download one large file. It might also be possible to split large files
 into chunks and use the multiple connections to download the chunks and
 put them back together after they have been downloaded.

 If Cyberduck had this ability it would greatly increase the speed of
 transfers. You could make one connection list directories and another
 start transferring files. It would also greatly increase the speed of
 cyberduck in such cases where there are a lot of small files to transfer.
 I think we can agree that a faster ducky would make everyone happy. :)
