Using urllib2 and ftplib for file sharing

3 New Member
Me and a friend of mine are trying to make a file sharing program using python. I have a book that recommends using urllib2 for file transfers. But which ever we end up using, i cant find any explanation on how to use either for simple file transfers.

you could always try paramiko. I've used it for FTP and it is heavily documented: http://www.lag.net/paramiko/docs/

I'm using ftplib to do it, and for each file I'm using transfercmd("STOR " + myfile) to get the socket, then uploading 4096 bytes at a time and providing status updates via a GUI interface. Finally, I close the socket, set it to...

When I request a URL using urllib2, it appears that urllib2 always makes the request using HTTP 1.0, and not HTTP 1.1. I'm trying to use the "If-None-Match"/"ETag" HTTP headers to conserve bandwidth, but if I'm not mistaken, these are HTTP 1.1 headers, so I can't reasonably expect a web server to respond correctly to my requests. (In my limited testing, it looks like some servers respond correctly with an HTTP 304 status, while some...
