Parallelized FTP (P-FTP) approach, attempts to solve the problem of slow downloads of large multimedia files while optimizing the utilization of mirror servers. The approach presented in this paper downloads a single file from multiple mirror servers simultaneously, where each mirror server transfers a portion of the file. P-FTP server calculates the optimum division of the file for efficient transfer. The dynamic monitoring ability of P-FTP maintains the file transfer process at the optimized level no matter how abruptly network and mirror server characteristics change.
