Linda: isn't "rapidshare" a P2P network...apologies if not
"We" stay clear of such 'round here
doire: how big's the file? Sending any file over the net is mostly a function of the speed of the service[r]; telephone is the worst unless both ends have DSL, and if you have to go through one or more intermittent service, which will vary in their degree of speed, it will slow down in between...this is the same with any set of used servers ...
Depending on the packet size, the servers allow through their networks, at both ends and in between, you might be better off to split the file... into managable chunks
I use hjsplit.exe http://www.freebyte.com/hjsplit/
It's small, simple to use, fast and efficient. Both parties need a copy...one to split and one to join. Once you have established the limits of the service between both points, split the file accordingly.
