Last Modified: 2013-12-02
I am trying to upload files to a ftp server . I use the FTP program in the DOS prompt. I do
the following.

ftp> open myserver.com
User (myserver.comnone)):myusername
230 User myusername logged in.
ftp>put file.zip
(aftersometime I am getting the message)
Connection closed by remote host
ftp> ls
not connected

If I am trying to send small files I am able to transfer.

I am able to transfer large without any difficulty from the FTP client (filezilla) or  Windows
Explorer from my system to the FTP server.

plz help me out...becoz i need to write a batch script that will automatically upload the files in FTP in daily basis, so i want to put that batch file in schedule task....
