Download from Usenet to FTP

Started in 1971, File Transfer Protocol – better known as FTP, has been one of the revolutionary ways to transfer files from one place to another. The ability to transfer multiple files, along with adding files to download / upload queue has always been one of the strongest points of FTP. Despite being an old protocol, FTP has stood the test of time and still continues to remain strong.
