1. Make sure you're using the latest version of ftpsync, and add procedures
to make sure you'll keep it up-do-date (release-based, it is not that safe

http range requests: Check your load-balancers, application firewalls and
reverse proxies, and also the web server. This is RFC-2616, section 3.12,
14.35 and 14.16.
ftp range requests: use a properly configured ftp daemon with support for
the "REST" ftp verb (I believe vsftpd is a good choice for this, but I
didn't check). ftp service is not that useful anymore due to its high
command and connection setup latency, http + rsync service is a lot more
important and has much higher usability.
