Does the transfer fail on the same files each time? Check the persmissions on the files you wish to transfer, or transfer as root user.

What FTP client are you using. The command line ftp (in DOS window)
or some tool like WsFTP or the like?

What exactly do you do:
- Connect to Aix serverwith FTP
- Login as ordinary (?) user
- cet transfer mode to binary (?)
- cd to some directory
- run "dir" command
- set modetobinary / ascii ?
- Now, get files / mget files with wildcards (* and/or ?)

Are you sure the the file you are trying to copy (get) is not
in use, gets changed at that very moment?

Do you have service pack 2 installed? Service Pack 2 fixes some of the Rename Temp File calloc errors.

I have a similar issue. The first get was executed by using a FTP script - FTP -s:ftpscript.txt and it fails.
The second snippet is the result of performing each step manually from the command line - it works fine.
Both say the download the correct number of bytes, but the first one fails every time.
Any ideas?

ftp> get dat-5467.zip
200 PORT command successful.
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for dat-5467.zip (56982006 bytes).
> Rename Temp File calloc:ICMP port unreachable
226 Transfer Complete
ftp: 56982006 bytes received in 570.06Seconds 99.96Kbytes/sec.
