    Hi,

    When trying to download large files it allways stops at around 172,000 bytes. I can download small files fine.

    My ISP says to turn off PASV which I have done but its no different.

    Any Ideas

    Can you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after you see the problem? Choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu to open it.

    Thanks,

    I don't see an obvious explanation for the problem. You might try checking the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences. Does that make any difference?

    Thanks,

    Yes, tried that.

    Infact thats what my ISP told me to do but its had no affect at all. The downloads still stop, even if I download a group of files.

    Have you tried any other FTP clients, to see if they have the same problem?
