FTP Transfer problems

FTP Transfer problems
November 14, 2011 05:45AM
Anybody else having FTP transfer problems? Trying to upload files to my account using FTP and i am having lots of problems with time outs, directory not available and periods where I can't connect to FTP at all. Using ftp.tradebit.com and my usual username and password. Trying to connect from the UK.

Yes, I have experienced the exact same problems over the last week or so.
Sometimes my ftp client will not connect to the Tradebit ftp, even though other ftp sites have no problems with same software/client.

Well at least it sounds like it's not me then. Using Filezilla I thought it was the fact I was transferring a lot of files (180 files with total size 4Gcool smiley but it seems to drop out regardless of amount or file size.

Very frustrating....

hmmm, you are using ftp.tradebit.com? have you tried to directly address one of our FTP servers? ftp.tradebit rotates among:

pa.tradebit.com
pb
pc
pd

and maybe the client is trying to rotate after a while and looses it... would be great to hear some feedback on this!

this is strange! we might have to increase the timeout on the FTP servers. It looks like the remote drives mount is timing out on the FTP server... hmmmm, a bit clueless here, sorry! I will read up on it!

Hi Ralf,

Thanks for looking into it. As of this morning though unable to use ftp.tradebit.com, pa or pb they all time out or won't connect. Can't upload anything!

Tried Filezilla and CuteFtp on ftp.tradebit.com and pa, pb, pc and pd. Both programmes time out after about 20 seconds of transfer on all 4 servers. Am I the only person having trouble with this?
