Problem using FTP over an ADSL router
Posted on 2004-09-27
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)
