How much buffer size should i set? i have various file(images,zip,excel,txt etc) 25kb to 25Mb to download.



I've set the buffer to 8192 (8k), it seems to work fine although I don't really know if there's an advantage or disadvantage to changing this value. 8k just seemed like a reasonable size. Any suggestions?
Thanks

That's probably good enough. You could experiment with other buffer sizes and see if it made any significant difference, if you liked, but I don't think it's going to.
