After upload, stalls (4 posts)

    When I upload a fairly large file, greater than a few hundred K, after the upload is complete, the system hangs for quite a while and then stalls. It looks as if it is waiting for some kind of EOF marker. I get out of it by screwing around, not knowing what to do. The upload looks OK, but I don't trust it at all.

    I am uploading Flash FLV files to Apache.

    Hi,

    Most likely the upload has finished and is fine, but Fetch just hasn't received the message from the server confirming that the transfer has finished.

    Which version of Fetch are you using? Our suggestions of what to try to fix this problem depend on which version you have.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for getting back. I am using the latest version which I downloaded for a trial on Dec. 2.

    Hi,

    Could you please check the following?

    * Choose Preferences from the Fetch menu.
    * Click on the Obscure tab.
    * Make sure "Contact servers during long transfers" is unchecked.

    If it was checked, uncheck it and see if that fixes the problem.

    If it does not, the next time you run into the problem, could you please post a transcript? To do this, choose Fetch Transcript from the Window menu, copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and paste them into a reply to this message.

    We'll take a look and see if we can figure out what's going on.

    Thanks,
