Have you considered using a download manager, e.g.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wget

See : https://www.gnu.org/software/wget/


GNU Wget : 

It is a non-interactive commandline tool, so it may easily be called from scripts.

GNU Wget has many features to make retrieving large files or mirroring entire web or FTP sites easy, including:
- Can resume aborted downloads, using REST and RANGE

Info (only one of many) : https://mgxp.blogspot.com/2010/01/wget-ftp-command-line-download.html

a "download manager" is a program that can - among other features - download a file in parts (for whatever reason).

AutoIt is not a download manager, although it does allow you to code such a feature, if you have the time, adequate knowledge, motivation, and a real reason.

otherwise, use your AutoIt script to operate an existing download manager as suggested above.

AutoIt is fully capable of operating a console application, see the help for the Run() function.

WHY do you need to code it in AutoIt?
As fire, wheel and download manager have already been invnted, why reinvent the wheel ;)
