Hi,

Initially the site was loading many files through multiple connections at once. Now a 3 days later it has only been connecting through one connection at a time for the last two days. With millions of files to load this is going to take forever.
I'm nowhere near my bandwidth cap.

When I unchecked use alternate connection method the text changed from 'connecting to host' to 'connected to host..waiting for..' but it didn't seem to help otherwise and I'm unsure whether you have to use this method for protected sites anyway.

How do I utilize multiple connections simultaneously for a secure form site in this instance?

Thanks for any help offered.

Yes, it is a known fact. There are many sites that limit the number of simultaneous connections. It is a kind of server-side setting.

The only way is to use multiple proxy servers, so Offline Explorer would connect through another proxy.

Sometimes it also helps to decrease number of connections to 5, 3 or even 2 to get at least some improvement.

Best regards,

Thanks for the speedy response.

Does this only occur if the server detects multiple connections from the same ip? I ask because at first it was working optimally.
Again sorry for any ignorance on my part, and the support is much appreciated.

I discussed it with our web developer. He says that modern servers have so-called connection pools. They cause this kind of behavior. He was not absolutely sure, but most probably they are connected to the session ID. This way, even if you use multiple proxy servers, you may face the same issue, because your logon session ID will be the same.
