    I don't swear that this is a new problem but it is very annoying. Uploads stall at about 2MB.
    No problem with the same file and server using command line ftp (Terminal) or CuteFTP from my PC
    Fetch 5.0.5 Mac OSX10.4.6

    This is what the transcript says:

    TYPE I
    200 TYPE is now 8-bit binary
    227 Entering Passive Mode (66,235,199,11,31,217)
    STOR QuickCardiac.pdf
    150 Accepted data connection
    ***transfer starts here and after 2MB the following command is issued********
    ******at which point the transfer stops; the following after I manually abort********
    Unsuccessful transfer of QuickCardiac.pdf (2,149,216 bytes, 15,135 bytes/sec, 2:22 elapsed) stopped at 4/28/06 9:34:48 AM
    421 Timeout (no new data for 900 seconds)

    Thought that PWD may be issued because of Keepalive but when I unchecked that in preferences, it was still issued coincident with the transfer stalling. Also tried Active mode but still PWD is issued and transfer stalls.

    I notice on MacOSXHints, the default built in ftp settings have changed with Tiger as far as epsv4. Don't know what this is nor whether it is relevant.

    OK, unchecking "Contact Server During Long Transfers" in the "Obscure" tab of Preferences fixed it...

    Hi Colin,

    Sounds like you're all set, but please let us know if you have further questions.

    Both the "Contact server during long transfers" preference and the "Keep connections alive" send PWDs, but the difference is when they send them.

    "Contact server during long transfer" sends them while a transfer is taking place, which solves problems on some servers, but makes some other servers unhappy.
