weird filename when I upload (3 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm having a problem when I upload files where all filenames are transformed with weird name like:

    ftpGWkK91
    ftpIJNtFO
    ftpNu9ec9
    ftpTNnE3x
    ftpUe3L0B
    ftpVKUWiV
    ftpXLxSax
    ftpvYBPfI
    ftpyVDV5k

    instead of :
    index.php
    test.php
    etc...

    It seems I'm having this issue only with Fetch program and 1 server.

    Here's the transcript if someone has any idea:

    227 Entering Passive Mode (69,94,94,196,236,130).
    Making data connection to 69.94.94.196 port 60546
    STOU hello.php
    150 FILE: ftpXvwrab
    226 Transfer complete.
    Transfer of hello.php (24 bytes, 0 bytes/sec, 0:00 elapsed) completed at 8/3/07 3:55:56 PM

    Hi,

    When you use the Put command, change the setting of the "If a file already exists:" menu to "Replace existing file". Do not use "Pick a different name".

    When this menu is set to "Pick a different name," Fetch asks the server to pick a new name for your files if ones with the same name already exist, so that your existing files are not replaced. Unfortunately, some servers always pick new names for files whether they need to or not, and often the names have little relation to the file's original name.

    Please let us know if this doesn't fix your problem.

    Thanks,
