|I am having problems uploading files to one particular host that I use via FTP clients. Every file I send to that host always ends up as a zero byte file. I can upload files to other hosts with no problems.|
However, I tested logging into the host using the ftp command in the Windows Command Prompt and using the "put" command. When I do that, the files transfer successfully. Same if I enter the ftp address in the Windows Explorer address bar and use Windows Explorer to transfer the files.
But if I try FTP client software (RhinoSoft FTP Voyager, FireFTP plugin for Firefox, and Filezilla), the end result is a 0 byte file on the remote server. The 0 byte file problem is just for that one host. In contrast, I can transfer files to other hosts successfully using the above clients both with U-verse at home and at also from work via my employer's network.
Does the fact that the files transfer correctly via the Windows command prompt or Windows Explorer, but transfer as 0 byte files via the ftp clients offer any clues as to what might be wrong?
The administrator of the host server that is giving me problems says he can log-in to an FTP client with my ID and password and upload files with no problems. He asked someonel else to try and they could, too. I don't understand how he is able to successfully transfer files where I have tried multiple FTP clients on 3 different PCs on two different networks, and I cannot transfer a file without it being reduced to 0 bytes.
Thanks in advance for any ideas on this.
