An application is basically just downloading a couple of files from an FTP
server. Sometimes this application just hangs up, no exception on
Transfertimeout, while both the Readtimeout and Transfertimeout have values
of 60000.

I'm using Indy 10.1.1, the application just running under Windows XP SP2.

If I specify a value of 1 (1 mS) for Transfertimeout the problem is easier
to reproduce (1 out of 5...).

Why isn't the exception for transfertimeout thrown?

Kind regards,

Cees Glas.
