Shame, because I had already answered your questions there.

If TIdFTP thinks files are still transferring, then the server is not reporting
any errors back to TIdFTP, but the problem has to be on the server end and
how it is managing the files.

That means the server opened a listening port on its end and sent the IP/Port
back to TIdFTP to connect to.  If Put() hangs at that point, then TIdFTP
was not able to connect and will eventually raise an exception.  But if Put()
is not hanging or raising exceptions, then the server has to be responding
with success replies.
