    Could you choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu when it is stuck, and post the contents of that window?

    Thanks,

    Have you tried uploading the same file under a much shorter name, to see if it's the length of the name that makes a difference?

    macteq: Are you saying the Cyberduck uploads files successfully under the long name? Could you post a transcript?

    Do you see the shortened name when you upload a long file name and refresh with Cyberduck? I think it's something that the FTP server is doing on the Xbox side.

    macteq:

    Fetch detects that it is talking to a server that supports MacBinary, and sends the file in MacBinary format (in order to preserve the resource fork and Finder data). It looks like Rumpus has a bug in its MacBinary support that results in the file being mangled. Could you find out what version of Rumpus this is, so that I can investigate further?

    You can work around this problem by choosing "Binary (Raw Data)" from the Format menu in the Remote menu (instead of "Automatic"); then Fetch won't use MacBinary.

    Thanks,
