Exactly - 2GB is going to be hell to upload. At least with FTP it can use
multiple ports for data transfer. And with a web interface I'd expect users
to get annoyed with clicking "back" accidentally or having their
email-client open a link using the same window. With FTP you can
"background" the process.
Yeah, users would do something like that... I wonder how youtube deals with it?
Those uploads take a loooong time.. do users get frustrated and abort the
Handling the upload in a web server or backend application wouldn't be hard at
all though, it's mostly just handling the user that's the problem.
As for firewalls; just use an active connection rather than passive. Job
done. You'll loose the benefit of the different ports, though.
There's more to it than that... but again, not nginx related.
