Hi,

I was wondering how to seek() on remote files (when connected through ftp or http). The documentation says urllib doesn't support it and for FTP we could do use the REST <offset> command to restart at a position (provided the remote server supports restart). Is there a cleaner way to do this? 

Thanks,
Senthil
