ftp error: Timeout waiting to read socket or accept connection

May 20 '13 at 16:40

Hi there, I'm using chillkat ftp to transfer files between 2 production servers and quite often at last error catch (if !Success) I'm getting this error: Timeout waiting to read socket or accept connection I browsed all the previous answers to similar problems other people had and they don't help. e.g. I set ftp.SendBufferSize = 4096; and it makes no difference. The files I'm getting the error on are not large at all. e.g . this last file is only 136 KB.

Here is my full Last error:

Any help would be appreciated.




check with your network admin if port 21 is being blocked. i had the same issue with port 22 and sure ebough it was blocked. after unblocking it connected every time.
