Links for 02/12/2011

  • "Although FTP is commonly used to transfer files over the Internet, it's somewhat unfriendly to firewalls, because of the various ports that need to be opened. A Microsoft solution you can use for Internet file transfer is the Background Intelligent Transfer Service, BITS for short. BITS runs in the background (hence its name) as a service and it transfers files over the browser ports (80, 443) using HTTP or HTTPS. In addition, BITS transfers are restartable, so if the transfer of a large file gets interrupted, it will resume where it left off."
