ftp failures and hanging sessions

I aim to update www.find-a-drug.co.uk (and the .com and .org mirrors) every 6 hours using an ISDN connection. I am experiencing problems with several ftp programs, different modems (including non-ISDN) and ISPs. Some ftp servers sometimes refuse the connection (and that I can workaround sometimes by retrying) but in other cases the ftp session hangs (the connection continues to work). Occasionally, the session is terminated but the connection remains. Prior to moving to Plus.net I had tried the 0845 number and this seemed perfect in 48 hours of testing. On 0808 9933000 the majority of automatic updates failed.

Any suggestions (I can't get cable or ADSL).

Have you tried ftp-proxy.plus.net?

Kind regards

RE: ftp failures and hanging sessions

I didn't realise this existed (and when I had previously tried ftp-proxy.e2binternet.com it didn't permit external connections). I'll leave my 0845 until Friday when I will be around to baby sit ...
