New DATS from McAfeeHTTP repository delayed vs McAfeeFTP

I've noticed that new DATS are available on the McAfeeFTP repository up to 2 hours before thye are available to downoad from McAfeeHTTP.  Is there a reason for this?  Our ePO server is behind a firewall and I would need to request port 21 be open to the FTP repository to use that.  Just doenst make sense why they wouldn't both be updated as soon as a new DAT is available.

Re: New DATS from McAfeeHTTP repository delayed vs McAfeeFTP

I've noticed that for a long time. I would see an update fail on HTTP because there was nothing newer (or worse, it seems incomplete and says there is a problem with the update.z file or similar.) If I try the FTP, it updates.
