OSX/Unix help

Ok so

My friend has a seed box in Europe that we download torrents to. The finished torrents are loaded into an FTP folder. We then direct download from the FTP folder at our max connection speed.

But I have a problem. If I use the server utility to connect to the FTP and try to copy and paste or download said file ill get the pinwheel of death and get a

"Connection interrupted"

message and finder will disconnect itself from the server. I've even gone as far as trying to use FileZilla to download stuff and it also fails to download anything from the FTP, it won't even start the download.

Now all that said, I have no problem downloading the entire downloads folder, not picking through for the specific file that I want. I don't want to download a couple hundred gigs of file when all I want to do is get one specific file.

No one else has this issue, and I have no idea how to resolve it.

Ideas?

This kind of sounds like a firewall + FTP passive port issue. An ftpd uses a range of passive ports for the connections to run on.

What OS is the server running, it might help to diagnose the problem easier.

Also, you could try to use SFTP which will use SSH.

Yeah, then you could use rsync with restart flag and be good to go. Torrents eh?

the server runs on linux - which specific version/type im not sure. i can find out though. the FTP manager/torrent client is ruTorrent

like i said, it will download the whole downloads folder just fine, its just when i open up the downloads folder to try and get something specific it will drop me.

Yeah torrents.. He is probably wanting to get the latest Gentoo, Fedora, CentOS, Debian, and Ubuntu ISOs in a distributed fashion

Sounds legit.

It sounds like a passive port issue. http://serverfault.com/questions/270...-only-one-port

If you have SSH access to the server, you can use SFTP, SCP or rsync. So try one of those if you can't fix the passive port issue or whatever it is. The methods I suggested are all encrypted too.
