Hi, I'm using Indy 9.0.14 with Delphi 7. One problem I've come across is
that when I transfer thousands of files in one session to an FTP server,
the FTP server locks-up. This happens with FileZilla and PFTP, but not
on other FTP servers. On PFTP the error message on the server is 'Data
session failed to open. Error #10048'. When this error occurs my
TidFTP.Put statement just hangs.

Is there anything I'm not doing (or doing) that's causing this problem?
Or is this a problem with the FTP server? I'm guessing that either the
FTP server or me is not closing the socket connection properly.

Thanks
