Problem downloading large file with FTP component

Post by Russ Pitcher » Mon Jan 11, 2010 11:12 pm

I have used the FTP component in a script to automate the daily download and processing of a file from an FTP site. This script has been working well for some time, but it started to fail this morning. The downloaded file is usually between 5 and 200MB, but today it is around 1GB in size. The download script starts OK, but when it's downloaded around 550MB of the file it seems to hang for about 30 seconds and the download fails. I can, however, download the file successfully using a GUI tool or using the MS FTP console app.

Is there any issue with file sizes or download timeouts that may cause the component to think the download has failed?

There is no specific size limit that we are aware of. First thing to check is most likely the timout setting on the ftp server.
See if downloading a smaller file over a slow connection fails after the same amount of time.
