Hi, some users of my program are experiencing problems with large files
on the FTP server (over 50MB in size). They are using different FTP
servers (NetFile and IIS). The issue seems to be that if a large file is
in the FTP directory then it somehow screws up the directory listing
(the user doesn't see the listing - it's internal in the program). I've
tried testing it on my end and I cannot duplicate it.

I'm retrieving the list of files by: TIdFTP.List(nil, '-al')

Has anybody come across anything similar or have any suggestions?

I'm using the latest version of Indy 9 on Delphi 7. Sorry for being
vague, but I'm not sure what the problem is or where it is.
