Download speed problem

P: n/a
I have a large file which has to be downloaded from a user using the
Internet Explorer. The problem is that when someone downloads this file, the
server slows down and the other users can not see the web pages from the
server because there is not available bandwidth. Is there any way to
decrease the download speed of this file by reading pieces of the file and
manually send each piece every 100 milliseconds in order to control the
speed of the download by increasing or decreasing the size of each piece?

You could consider bandwidth throttling the site application containing that
file, and only server that type of file from that site. The throttle would
not affect other sites on the server.

I've never had tor esort to it myself, but it might help you.

You dont - only for that application, so move that problem to another
application and the rest stays as is.

I know that there is a way to do it. In theory someone can read a file using
streams and retern it to the user. If we change it so that the page return a
portion of a file and delay for some milliseconds and then send an other
portion of the file and keep dooing this until the file have been
downloaded.

My problem is how to do it in ASP.NET.
