Socket Send Aborted? (NMFTP)


I am using the FTP component to download a file from a server, but when downloading a file that is 1.3 meg in size, it continually abends and says "socket send aborted".(?)  This has happened 5 or 6 times in a row, not always at that same point, sometimes it gets to 700k or 800k then abends, other times it may get over a meg an abend but never finish.  Any idea what could be causing this?  Uploading seems to work fine, as I have uploaded 1 meg files using this component without any problems.

Jexd99,

  I had this same problem with the NetMasters TNMFTP component. The answer is to set the Timeout value to 0 or some huge number.

You would think the Timeout would be triggered when the FTP component did not receive data in a specified amount of time.... NOT SO! The timeout that this component uses refers to the amount of time SINCE THE FILE TRANSFER STARTED to timeout with a "Socket Send Aborted" error.

Good luck with your project!

Wow, I'm absolutely stunned. I spent a full day researching the possible errors that could cause this, and I just tried your suggestion and it worked as you said.

That is really odd, but seeing it work finally is beautiful! :-)  Thanks.
