Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am using Net::FTP to download log files from about 50 domains but it seems to take much longer than it would if I were to use ws_ftp or the like. A lot of times it never seems to finish at all. Is there a way to improve the speed and reliability of Net::FTP, or would another module be more suited for this task?
