  Problem using wget with the -i option

  I don't think this is a bug but I have been trying to find a solution
  for some time and have not been able to.  I'm hoping there will be an
  option that I am overlooking or misunderstanding.

  The problem is that I am trying to download a set of files from an ftp
  site.  The files are Ocean Color related data from Goddard.  I have a
  small test area set up to generate test files, but the real case will
  have a lot more files.  New files appear on the ftp server as satellites
  collect the data.  When the processing system is working most of the files
  will have been downloaded and only new ones will be needed.

  I can get all the files on the site with a command like
        wget -rnd ftp://xyz 
  in about 1.5 minutes.

  If I put the URLs of all the files in the text file download.txt and try
        wget -rnd -i download.txt
  it gets the first two files and hangs on the third.
  This site only allows two connections at a time from a host, so that must
  be why two files are no problem.

  I can get all the files to download using a command like
        wget -rnd --timeout 2 -w 5 -i download.txt
  but that takes about 1.5 hours.

  Since getting all the files is fast I know it is possible to do.

  What am I missing?
  Can I tell wget that only two connections at a time are allowed
  for the ftp site?

  Thanks for any help.
