Problem using FTP over an ADSL router

I have noticed a probelm running FTP over an ADSL router whereby something happens a Reset(?) of somesort is issued/detected after around 3 minutes of activity.

I have noticed this on 3 different routers over BT OpenWorld and BT Connect, with Windows 2000 & Windows XP

If I use HotMetal Pro (An HTML Editor) to synchronise a WebSite and the FTP transfer lasts more than 3 minutes tne something goes wrong with the Sync.

Now ok I hear you say maybe its the software! Nope

If you use FTP in a Command Prompt then after 3 minutes it goes poop giving the respone 'T not understood' which is very helpful especially when you have just typed in 'cd ..' or 'dir'

So has anyone else come across this?
(BTW This does not appear to happen over a Dialup LInk)
Thanks,

I did a Google search on this, and the "T Not Understood" error seems to be associated with server permissions issues related to Web publishing...

Since this is happening only through BTOpenWorld, you will probably need to contact them to resolve this issue.

Searching on Google is so obvious I handt thought to do it duh..,...

Good tip though. I have spoken to my ISP who obviously had more pressing things on their minds such as collecting lint etc.... ANyway the bootom line is that chasing through the links I came on a Suggestion about turning on Passive FTP. This seemed to do the trick, I will search out the reason why this works later on. HOwever it does seem that you are correct in your suggestion that its to do with permissions.

Cheers,
