So far, the global standard for file uploading and downloading over internet has been FTP. A technology which is emerging fast on web today is mobile agent technology which can be applied for file download from remote server to remote client or server. We investigate the use of mobile agents for downloading of files from remote hosts. We believe this technology has the potential to foster new ways of downloading of files when compared to traditional FTP. This finds its application in achieving faster e-commerce, while purchasing the items online. We send mobile agent embedded within it the various types of file name/s to be downloaded from the remote server by specifying the itinerary details. The agent on reaching the server gets the file/s from the server and returns to the client along with the file. An e-commerce system of purchasing multimedia files (Audio, Video, and Image) online is implemented here. Simulation of this work has been carried out on IBM‟S Aglets framework and the performance has been tested by computing the round trip time. We have also devised an algorithm for purchasing the products which are in restricted realm. This technique appears to be faster when compared to traditional client server FTP based file download system.
