Why are my connections hanging when I try to retrieve a file?

You are trying to connect beyond the host connection limit set by OBPG. Any
subsequent connection after the limit will not be answered by the servers. FTP
client programs see this as a connection that never closes. So they will hang
on those connections. The best way to have this not happen is to only connect
to the FTP server a couple of times. Constant requests to the server after the
host limit has been reached will fail. To have this fail gracefully set the
connection timeouts in your FTP client programs to fail after a short period of time.

Your connections could also be hanging when trying to connect to the webservers to
download data. The webserver will limit your ability to download data by time
between requests. It also has the host connection limits described above.
