Client is not recieving entire file.

Feb 21 '13 at 12:49

Has anyone had this kind of issue. We have in excess of 500 clients, and two clients are reporting that we need to send the file again. We have success in the Put command. I am thinking that the client is processing the file before it is complete. Any ideas in proving that the problem is with the client's server. I have turned on the log, and showed the client that our side has sent the entire file successfully. Thanks in advance.


Some ftp servers do this automatically, but can't you upload the file with a temporary name ($$$filename$$$.tmp) and rename after the putfile completes?


Yes, our event handler has that feature, we call it safe mode.
