What http status code 206 states?

The HTTP 206 Partial Content success status response code indicates that the request has succeeded and has the body contains the requested ranges of data, as described in the Range header of the request.

If there is only one range, the Content-Type of the whole response is set to the type of the document, and a Content-Range is provided.

If several ranges are sent back, the Content-Type is set to multipart/byteranges and each fragment covers one range, with Content-Range and Content-Type describing it.
