"server sent and unexpected response" (6 posts)

    We have a video server we use for broadcast. The server is a proprietary embedded OS but utilizes the FAT32 file system and FTP as it's video upload method.

    Our edit suites are all mac and have Fetch as the FTP client that uploads finished products to the server. Frequently and with no replicateable consistency we get an error that says "server sent an unexpected response" when trying to upload video files. After this error the connection is broken. However the file(s) that we're uploaded work just fine and are transfered in their entirety. This is causing workflow problem because if the connection is broken when transfering multiple files any files remaining after the error aren't transfered. We have used other FTP clients with no error messages at all such as Filezilla from Windows and FTPClient and Cyberduck for mac. We would really really like to use Fetch though due to it's defacto status among the Mac community.

    Hi,

    We'd like to investigate this problem and see if we can resolve it.

    Could you please send us the transcript from one of these problem transfers?

    The next time you get one of these errors when uploading, please choose Fetch Transcript from the Window menu, copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and paste them into a reply to this message.

    We'll take a look and try to figure out what's going on.

    If you don't want to post the transcript here (or if it's very long), you can email it to:

    bb at fetchsoftworks dot com

    Thanks,

    Sorry for the delay. Here is the transcript. It repeated the error after transfering a file named "Clyde Edgerton and Alan Gurganus.mpg". However the file does work and is complete.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the transcript.

    This transcript shows an error at the end of a download; your original message said you were having problems with uploads. Are you receiving errors when uploading, downloading, or both?

    Do you ever see this problem with small files, or just large files? (I realize your main use seems to be moving large video files.)

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    After some testing the same error is occurring at the end of both download and uploads. (Today we just happened to be doing a server backup thus the reason for the downloads). I can't answer definitively regarding the large/small file question; my feeling is that our 30 second spots 'seem' to have fewer problems than the larger 30 minute and 1 hour programs (aprox. 1.5 and 3 gig respectively). Being that its a video server I hate to temp fate and upload a text file or other smaller file.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the additional information. We've been working on some potential fixes for these sorts of problems, and we'd like you to try a test build of Fetch if you're willing. Could you please send us an email at:

    bb at fetchsoftworks dot com

    and we'll go from there. (Please include a sentence or two about your problems, just so we can match your email with this message board thread.)

    Thanks,
