Hi @localshop, thanks for taking an interest.

The overall application is an internal file storage system. The client is fairly simple, and is mostly concerned with supplying authentication credentials, checking the SHA1 checksum of the file as it is downloaded, and re-trying failed downloads. The server checks credentials, records the fact that the client downloaded the file in a database, and finds the file in one of a set of caches, local and remote file servers.

I can't upload a code example at the moment because I am not at work, but I will create and upload a minimal sample when I get a chance.
