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.
