it looks like streaming... ftp is not intended for this...

instead, if you want to start download a particular file before the
upload is completed, the only case for this to have sense, is a file
update, so the good way to proceed is to upload the new file with
another name, then, delete the older and rename the newer (or use a
.htaccess redirection)
