File Service Protocol definition protocol
(FSP) A protocol
, similar to FTP
, for copying files
between computers. It's designed for anonymous archives, and has protection against server
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
for their eventual expansion. Other suggestions were "File Slurping Protocol", "Flaky Stream Protocol" and "FTP's Sexier Partner".
