FTP problems

By hot_pitt ·
I'm on a network which has a firewall and I use WS FTP LE to upload and download files to and from a remote web server, however when I try to upload files, I often get a message saying "blocking call cancelled" or a timeout after uploading the first file. It is as if it allows the file to be uploaded but stalls when waiting for a request from the server. It seems to send up files when it feels like it.
N.B. it used to work with the firewall before and it just stopped working for no apparent reason, so I don't think it is the firewall.

FTP problems

Hi there...

The "blocking call cancelled" error is actually from within WS_FTP and your local computer.
WS_FTP suggests the following solution if you receive one or more "Blocking call cancelled" messages and the file transfer is incomplete:

If you are using the Microsoft TCP/IP stack, part of the Windows 95 and NT operating systems, try setting the Maximum Transfer Unit (MTU) to 576.

For more information on this error see IpSwitch's Knowledgebase article:
