Default Resume starts from 0k every time.

Flash is the only ftp program that I have been able to use to connect from my computer to a friend's at work. We are both behind firewalls of different sorts.

I can list and download files, but if it is a large file(500 megs) it sometimes hangs and when it resumes it starts from zero file size. I have tried this again and again and if I download 200k of a file and then abort the file shows up on my local directory as 200k, but as soon as I resume the file size is reduced to 0k and everything starts from scratch again. Transfer of smaller files has not been a problem and I have the "auto resume" turned on and not overwrite.

Thanks for any help.

Does that mean your running that version (latest) ?

or are you asking if that is the latest ?, which it is.

does the status window show any information that might indicate why the file was overwrote?

What software is the ftp server running? It might be a compatiblity issue.

The server is running Warftpd 1.80.05 with Win 98SE.

I also tried the Flash version 1.4.1 bld 829, and with similar results. I just thought that there was maybe some setting that I could use that might correct the problem.

As soon as I go to resume the file, it is first reduced to 0k in my local directory, and then resumes from 0k every time. If the file does not have to resume then everything is fine. It seems that when Flash checks the file size on the local machine it changes it to zero. Nothing exceptional shows up in the status window.

just to ease my curiosity, do you have the rollback feature enabled in the 'when file exists' dialog? If yes what do you have it set to?

Rollback is not checked and there is "0" in the rollback box. I have confirmed with the operator of the ftp site that resume is not normally a problem for other users.

I tested resume downloading on warftpd 1.67 & 1.71 and in both cases I had no problem resuming.

Are you able to resume downloads from other ftp servers?

The only other thing I can think of is it completely reinstall FlashFXP into a new folder.

This particular server is WarFTPd 1.80.05

I have not actually tried other servers yet. Just went to ftp.ncsa.uiuc.edu and resume worked fine with my existing settings. I guess it must be a problem with this specific site. At least Flash is the only program so far that even lets me in to view the file listings. It may be a server setting or 1.80.05 itself.

Thanks for your help.
