[Closed] PA.c Installer, DownloadFiles, FTP & $PLUGINSDIR

If the download is cancelled while the installer is still displaying "Connecting...", the folder "$PLUGINSDIR/Downloaded" isn't removed. I can only reproduce this with FTP, HTTP cleans up fine. And so does FTP but *only* if it's cancelled once the download has started.

Is that a bug?

I tested with PicPickPortable (HTTP) & GZDoomPortable (FTP).

Don't use FTP

We don't support FTP as it is will not work behind firewalls at all. No apps will be released official that use FTP. I will disable FTP support in the next release.

FTP?

So I'm currently using this -

ftp://ftp.idsoftware.com/idstuff/doom/win95/doom95.zip

Is this OK? -

http

http is fine. As long as that second link winds up making an actual http connection (and not redirecting to a ftp connection), it's fine.

Re: http

First link -

Remote Port       : 21
Remote Port Name  : ftp
Remote Address    : 192.246.40.185
Remote Host Name  : quake3arena.com

Second link -

Remote Port       : 80
Remote Port Name  : http
Remote Address    : 147.102.222.211
Remote Host Name  : patroklos.noc.ntua.gr

Am I right in thinking the second one's not redirecting and is an actual HTTP connection?
