I am using ftpdownload [folder] to download the entire folder from remote to local. I wonder if it is able to specify simultaneous downloads when using the command? Like can I specify 5 concurrent downloads so that it would download 5 files at a time to increase speed?

If this is not possible is there any other way to achieve this? Can this be done in future feature request? Thanks.

Typically this means that multiple connections to the server have to be made - the easiest way to implement this would be to simply run another script (the enterprise edition supports running up to 16 simultaneous instances). Support for concurrent file transfers within a single script in the future is a possibility.

I thought of this but how do I utilize ftpdownload [folder] with 2 scripts?

If I am running two scripts at the same time with ftpdownload [folder], wouldn't they grab the the same file together?

You are right - using two scripts works only when downloading different folders or different sets of files. I have added this as a feature request for our developers but I'm not sure if and when this will be available.
