Large downloads stall using Fetch 5.0.4 stalling on G5 iMac (5 posts)

    I am running Fetch 5.0.4 in my G5 iMac using system 10.4.3. It works fine for small downloads (less than 10MB or so), but for large downloads, The information at the bottom of the window indicates that a file of the correct size has been downloaded, but Fetch does not close the connection. Does it just take a really long time to close the connection? I know this is the case when connecting to my .mac disc.

    Please advise.

    thx

    Hi,

    Try checking the "Contact server during long transfers" checkbox in the Obscure pane of the Preferences, and see if that solves the problem.

    Thanks,

    Jim, your suggestion to Contact Server During Long Transfers (under Obscure in the Preferences) worded for a couple of weeks, but I am having problems with uploads again. Today I tried several times to upload a 35MB site to a client's ftp site and it stalled anywhere between 28MB and 31MB. I tried four times, once after I had shut down the computer and restarted.

    Hi,

    The "Contact server during long transfers" preference only applies to downloads, not uploads - you are experiencing a different problem here.

    Stalled uploads are usually caused by the server running out of space. I'd suggest checking with the client and making sure there is room to upload a 35MB file to their server. Have them try deleting a large file if possible. Let us know if that doesn't turn out to be the problem.

    Thanks,
