Strange FTP Timeout Problems
Posted on 2003-11-02
I'm experiencing a perplexing FTP problem.
I have a scheduled FTP running on a Windows 2000 Server. It uploads a 30 megabyte MS Access database file to a remote webserver on the Internet.
If I use Windows FTP program, which I belive is ACTIVE FTP only, the upload reaches around 1.3MB then times out.
If I use a program such as PrimaSoft AutoFTP it times out at various times during the upload. Whether I use ACTIVE or PASSIVE methods.
If I use FTP Explorer or CuteFTP and do a manual upload the whole file is transferred without a problem.
Obviously I need to have a nightly scheduled upload rather than manual, and can't see why using Windows FTP or PrimaSoft AutoFTP isn't working.
My FastHosts webhosting company says that the FTP of the file should be fine.
I have no idea!
