Hi all,
This is a simple question in case you have worked with MTFTP4. This protocol has 2 bytes for the block sequence numbers. Therefore the maximum sequence number is 65535. Some servers, after the block 65535 has been sent, are able to wrap the numbers and start with the block number 0 again. Therefore, there would not be a file limit.
My question is, the MTFTP4 protocol has this behavior? Or it does not wrap numbers? (i.e it finishes in seq number 65535 and does not continue)
