    i can upload html pages just fine. but i haven't been able to upload a single image yet. every time i upload an image file, the doggie runs...and runs and runs, but nothing seems to happen. when i give up and click stop, fetch gives me a message saying "server file error, transfer aborted, data connection closed." if i go to my site and type in the address of the image, a page comes up to say "The image “http://www.mysite.com/images/myimage.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors." i've tried many variations, but always the same end result.
    i have my own domain name site hosted by earthlink. i have dsl and mac with airport. i'm paying bucks to have all this speed and server space and i've got a site to build. what's going on? should i try a different ftp? i certainly don't want to go through the trouble of switching isp. my friend can upload images to my site with his modem connection, but i certainly can't call on him to upload images for me all the time. what am i going to do? please don't tell me i've got to buy more products and spend more money and go through more hassle. i just want to get my small business site up and running.
    thanks,
    josie

    Several of us are having similar problems with uploads. A workaround is to plug the ethernet cable from the DSL modem straight into your computer. This works for me. Of course, I don't want to always have to do this - I hope a solution emerges...

    hmm. so the problem is due to airport? is it not able to handle the file size or something? that is what you're implying, right, that i should bypass airport because that is the problem?

    Bypassing your airport base station is a good test to find out whether it's part of the problem you're seeing. You *should* be able to upload via airport (I do all the time) but it's still a worthwhile test.
