FTP problems from a vb application

I have a vb application that is a content management system for a website. It FTP's any new content or components to the destination of the live website every half hour using the Internet Transfer Control. The problem is if there is more than one component waiting to be FTP'ed it fails on the transfer of the second component and returns the following error "550 Content: The system cannot find the file specified" even though its the same destination as the first transfer. The file definitely exists there. It will continue on and transfer a third component sucessfully. Also a half an hour later the application will successfully transfer the failed component when it is first in the queue.All theories are welcome.

I also had this problem last year. I resolved it by having a loop (1 to 10 I think). Inside each loop, I open the connection transfert file and CLOSE the connection. This really helped me.

I have a loop in it at the moment that loops through all the components that are in the queue but it still always seems to fail on the second component. The same code is used for the transfer of content files to the live site and it works fine for all content files that are in the queue.

try closing the connection between each file.

i am with emoreau 100%. i had that problem too (but not with control) and resolved open/close connection for each file. It appears like a time out problem from time to time so connection is lost.
