Default Extra bandwidth in use


I'm just noticed something that seemed odd to me and only happens when I use FlashFXP. I've got a program that watches my current bandwidth (up/down) and when I'm downloading with FlashFXP, my upload speed shows that I'm uploading. For example, I was downloading something at: 600kb/s and my upload was saying 15kb/s (please see picutre) .

I'm not running any peer-to-peer software, or anything that might be causing the upload to go up like that, and it only happens when I'm downloading. Just so you know, I'm currently running: FlashFXP 3.0 build 1010 Rc 4, on Windows XP.

Any thoughts, suggestions, or ideas in regards to this would be greatly appreciated.

this is normal behavior of tcp/ip protocol.
when you download something, data is coming to you in blocks. after recieving each block, your computer sends back ACKnowledge packet indicating that everything ok, send the next one.
so the faster you download, the more data is sent back in ACK packets.

plus build 1010 is extremely old and extremely buggy version. you upgrade to the latest available version asap.
