Cannot figure out why ftp uploads are so flakey from my home computer.
From my work computer: …no problem
From my home: it will work fine for awhile then it will go into a “funk” and won’t upload. Download is fine. Listing the contents of a directory is fine. Deleting is fine. But uploading will hang with an hourglass and the file size on the remote is zero.
Can successfully transfer files <1KB!
Cannot store files >1kb. The log is the same as for smaller files but hangs after STOR. From log:
STATUS:> Connecting FTP data socket …
STATUS:> Passive connection established.
STATUS:> Data socket info: (local)… - (peer)…
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for
Then, after a period of time…
ERROR:> Timeout (60000 ms) occurred on receiving server response.
Same behavior with Keep Alive on or off.
On both computers: WinXPPro, SBC DSL, CuteFTP 7. Happens with Dreamhost and Yahoo webhosting.
I first saw the problem at home when using free SmartFTP and blamed it on the program. But, same problem with Filezilla and CuteFTP Home 7. I use CuteFTP Pro at work.
Using default settings for CuteFTP:
- protocol: FTP, port 21
- server type: autodetect
- transfer method: auto detect
