Net::FTP filesize limit

Threaded View

I have written a script to grab some files via FTP. All is fine for all
file sizes when I run it from my development machine (Active Perl) but
when I use it on the ISP webserver (unix based) all works OK except
that files over 500k are ignored by the get method. The script does not
crash though, just the larger files are not got. I have set Timeout
option to 240 for the new method.

Has the ISP tampered with NET::FTP module to restrict size of files? Is
there a way I can override thier restiction? Whereabouts within the file can I find the code which limits the size of files copied?

Your ISP should be able to confirm this. If they are doing that, I would
want to know why they are setting the limit at such a small size - and I
would probably also be thinking about taking my business elsewhere.
