FTSO copy fails after reconnection?

» close window

The Question is:

We are currently experiencing the following problem with FTSO.
We are copying a 248427 block ZIP file accross our WAN on a 64K link running
 TCP/IP VAX to VAX. The copy works fine on smaller files, and has worked before
 for large files of this type.The copy starts but fails after about 2-3 hours
 only partially copy th
e file.
The FTSO log shows the following:
FTSO Job: 6743  (F)  Posted at: Fri Dec  1 14:09:41 2000  By: WILSON_M
Command: copy tddv05_cis2000cm_000_vc_release.zip tddv05_ftp::*.*
Completed at: Fri Dec  1 15:01:49 2000  Status: error
Terminated at: Fri Dec  1 15:01:48 2000  Status: error
%cftp_set_idle_time, normal
504 SITE Unknown type.
%FTSO-E-DESEXIS, destination file already exists, not superseded
%FTSO-E-TASKFAIL, secondary job 674301 has failed
We've checked the links and they are OK. I can't work out why it looks as if
 it's trying to overwrite the file again and failing. If that is why it is
Thanks for any ideas/help.

The Answer is :

  This would appear to be a bug in the version of FTSO in use.
