Topic "Transfer Error when uploading a lot of small text files"

Author Message

Seem to be getting "Passive data channel timed out" errors every so often when uploading the same 33 text files. I've tried all the solutions I could find here in the forums, had been using an older version and upgraded it, but still getting the same problem. Sometimes happens when uploading *.zip as well. The big problem is that once the error occurs, the script continues on having only done a number of the files, and so there is no indication to our automated task whether the FTP upload has worked successfully in full or not.

The sample file contains the last failed section, the other file contains the full log

Any help greatly appreciated,
