works perfectly for me.
btw, 10054 is connection reset by peer. are you sure you are configuring your idftp correctly (maybe passive is necessary?)


with Administrator rights it works fine, but then i install program on user rights acount it makes error... :(

well, on my system, I made a simple program only having an idftp component on it, configured as passive (required by my ftp server), those 3 lines you posted in the form oncreate (different file name though) and from my user with admin rights I right clicked on the exe and selected "run as" and inputed my test account (no admin rights) and it worked just fine.

can you do this as well? maybe there is an issue with your application. make a small one, test app and see if the issue reproduces. there is no reason why a simple program with ftp client will not run on an account with no admin rights.


i done it... on my test pc it works... but with other pc on user acount rights it not working... maybe i need something to install on client compiuter about indy...
strange things is happening

never heard of such necessity. try looking in the event log on the computer where the application is failing. see if you have any entries in one of the 3 logs regarding your application. it might be some restrictions in effect on that machine.

what this about...
Top Expert 2007
well, that is certainly not related to the indy component, but to the pc configurations. more exactly, it seems that the pc is in a domain and has some issues. I am not an expert on this side, but I did find the following: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Q_21304901.html and http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=920445 and http://blog.tmcnet.com/blog/tom-keating/technology-and-science/playing-chicken-installing-microsoft-windows-xp-sp2.asp
