in thread Reverse download protocols [solved]

you seem to have not understood me at all

With all due respect, I think that's because you haven't been clear at all. Your question makes almost no sense.

And so on, until the client knows the file completely, so has no more questions

Why does the client need to ask the server questions in order to download a file? wtf are you even talking about? This does not sound like any client/server file download transaction I've ever heard of.

    I am not clear, because I don't know the solution, nor do I possess the abstract terminology. But I'm sure the problem is clearly stated to an open mind. I presented one minimum already. Are there others? And what are they?

    And don't take my descriptions like "hash" literally. The fact that you haven't heard of something similar is no argument invalidating this problem whatsoever.
      I presented one minimum already.

      Actually you presented a maximum, an upper-bound.

        It's the absolute minimum - just one bit on the server downlink. I added one more edit to my question to make this crystal clear. I thought it was already.
