FTP problems

new lines are gone

When I view or download files with FTP all new lines are gone (all text is on one line)and some strange characters appear. I notice this on 2 different computers, so it must be something on the server of the webhost.

This happened also a few months ago. Then the webhost said that there was no problem and that he could view the files without problems. When I checked again the problem was indeed gone. What could cause this?

Are you viewing the files in Binary mode? View in ASCII instead and it'll probably be fine.

I view them as ASCII as I always do. I changed nothing. Is it possible that the server forces the files to be transferred as binary?

The problem persists on one server only. Although I specify ASCII during FTP transer the LF newlines are not converted to CR/LF newlines. Can this be caused by wrong settings on the server?
