FTP sends but wont receive files

 1:21 pm on Oct 1, 2009 (gmt 0)

I can send files through FTP just fine. However, when trying to send files back the file that comes back will have a size of 0 bytes. Have tried both ascii and binary send/receive for transfer. Can't see the file size of any file on the server.

On a VMS system if that helps any but I don't believe that should be a factor.

Have you enough room for the files to receive?

I think I figured it out, tried a different FTP program. This one will let me send and receive, it just doesn't clean up the extension at the end of the files. I guess the previous FTP incorrectly claimed it could handle VMS(had a drop down box of different OS to choose from).

On VMS extensions will end in a ";1" so if the FTP doesn't know that it doesn't understand any of the files.
