Downloads the file from a HTTP, FTP or SSH url. the current implementation -in FileTP- is in experimental stage, providing only basic features, specially for ssh transfers.
From the changelog:
2004/02/07: Fabrice (version 2.5.9, tag release-2-5-9) ... * FileTP: * Basic \"remote shell\" protocol (using ssh): use 'http <ssh://hostname/relative-filename>' to download the file hostname:~/relative-filename. ssh must be able to connect to the host without password exchange. The remote host must have the 'get_range' utility in the PATH of ssh (use \"make utils\" to have 'get_range' compiled with in mldonkey). The transfer rate is not very good (30 KB/s, either because of too small tcpBufferedSocket buffers, or because of the base64 encoding).
