1.6 Applicability Statement


The protocol does not control whether the upload request or download request sent by the protocol client is for all contents or for an incremental update of the file. The protocol provides means that allow for this type of specification in the request.

The advantages of this protocol can be seen when used in conjunction with the protocol as described in [MS-FSSHTTPB], which allows for upload requests of incremental updates to the contents or partition data associated with the file.

The protocol is advantageous when used for the upload and download of files that require coauthoring and are stored on a single protocol server.
