View Full Version : [ubuntu] ftp download issue

July 2nd, 2009, 03:40 PM
I'm having a problem with downloading large files from a remote server. Small files (~ a few kilobytes) come across fine. Large files (10MB and greater) don't even get started. I've used the command line, firefox and gftp and all have the same problem. I have no difficulty with http file transfers. It doesn't seem to be special to 9.04 as I had the same problem last fall with 8.10. Can anyone sort this out? Thanks, Nelson

Well I can say that I have no problem with pulling from FTPs. Have you tried to see if you can increase the verbosity of your download or get a log to see what is happening?

check your MTU values on the interface , post output of ifconfig from the terminal
