3    * What BBFTP is
4
5        o BBFTP is a software designed to quickly transfer files accross a
6          wide area network. It has been written for the Babar experiment in
7          order to transfer big files (more than 2 GigaBytes) between SLAC
8          (Californie) and the In2p3 Computing Center(Lyon,France).
9
10        o BBFTP is divided in two parts : a daemon and several clients. The
11          clients are talking with the daemon on a control connection, and
12          are transfering data throught several parallel tcp streams. All
13          those streams use big windows as defined in rfc1323.
14
15        o BBFTP also give the ability to compress (and uncompress) data on
16          the fly. Usage has shown that with a speed link of 34 Mbps,
17          compression, even with a powerfull computer is not efficient.
18
19        o In order to secure the transmission of the username and the
20          password BBFTP uses the cryptolib of the OpenSSL project.
21
22   * What BBFTP is not
23
24        o A client implementing the FTP protocol.
25
26        o A very efficient tool to transfer small files accross a local area
27          network.
