Another ftp problem?

Don't know the source of this, but over the last couple of weeks I have started to have problems with ftp. Seems to be OK from the cgi server, but from my main webspace some files seem to be "losing" the very first character on download. Upload seems to be OK.

First noticed it when I was unable to open excel files that I had transferred via my webspace - then on investigating a little tonight it also affects other file types - the reason I suspect the first character is that the html files that I have downloaded have lost the "<" before the html tag at the start.

Sorry of this is a bit vague - anyone else experiencing the same problem

Try with your firewall disabled and see if the problem still exists.

Thanks for that Peter - turned off the anti-virus monitoring on the firewall and the problem goes away
