File Service Protocol
Jump to user comments
protocol (FSP) A protocol, similar to FTP, for copying
files between computers. It's designed for anonymousarchives, and has protection against server and network
overloading. It doesn't use connections so it can survive
interruptions in service.
Until 1993-08-12, FSP didn't stand for anything. Wen-King
was responsible for the initials and Michael Grubb
mg@ac.duke.edu for their eventual expansion. Other
suggestions were "File Slurping Protocol", "Flaky Stream
Protocol" and "FTP's Sexier Partner".
