...experience that DA defaults to opening four connections to the same file (with a permissible maximum of eight.) Now, it doesn't have to; you can simply use one and still get the resume functionality. However, there are too many dumb@$$es out there with no knowledge of basic server setup... including, it seems, the authors of the software.

Given that there are other freebie (well, ad-supported) d/l managers out there, the inherent unfriendliness of DA toward targets ought to warn away users who don't like their requests being kicked repeatedly.
