    Hi All,

    I use a cable modem. Let's say i'm downloading a file with a size of 2k. When i download from my server, the file will <i>burst</i> onto my hard drive, fetch shows file size at 2k, downloaded bytes at 2k, but then the bytes/sec begins a slow (and i mean slow) countdown from, say, 900 bytes/sec to finally 0 bytes/sec before the dog stops runnning and the download is complete.

    For a 2k file this can take over a minute for the bytes/sec countdown to complete. Here is a sample transcript showing the problem:
    ----------------------------------------------
    MDTM tag_check.mv
    213 20030430180833
    PORT 68,67,203,244,16,161
    200 PORT command successful.
    RETR tag_check.mv
    150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for tag_check.mv (4622 bytes).
    226 Transfer complete.
    Download completed at 4/30/03 2:18:07 PM (state == RGET_RETRIEVING)
    SIZE tag_it.mv
    213 1917
    MDTM tag_it.mv
    213 20030430180833
    PORT 68,67,203,244,168,210
    200 PORT command successful.
    RETR tag_it.mv
    150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for tag_it.mv (1868 bytes).
    226 Transfer complete.
    Download completed at 4/30/03 2:19:21 PM (state == RGET_RETRIEVING)
    CWD stuckmic
    250 CWD command successful
    ----------------------------------------------

    The "tag_check.mv" file finishes downloading at 2:18:07 PM. Then the next file (tag_it.mv) is only 1868 bytes but doesn't complete downloading until 2:19:21 PM :eek: because of the "drib and drab" symptoms i describe above.

    Any ideas :)

    I hate to say it ... but nevermind ... it turns out it was a server-side problem. :)
