    I want to get real time data(flight data) from an FTP site. Is there any way to read the data from the file just as the data can be read from TCP stream?

    If the file is downloaded and I want to get the current data from the file on the FTP site, how is this possible to start reading where I last read from?

    It takes time to download a FTP file and have it current at the same time.

    Can you give me some insight on this?

    Not possible with ftp.
    You can up/download a file as a whole, and thatīs it.

    Can you use nfs or cifs (only suitable for private nets or via vpn, imho)?
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    I did some more research on the web and found out that there is a way to read data directly from FTP site but no real specific

    For example mount remote FTP host a a local directories and read file in that directory.

    Any light on this issue?
