The mput feature of the FTP client doesn't work very well
on slow connections (due to packet loss). When you do
a mput *, the client has a tendancy to skip over
the odd file from time to time. File permissions isn't
Actually the FTP server gets the request to send the next
file from the client, the server prints the message
"READY TO RECIEVE...", and then the client at times
just doesn't send the file, and sends the next file
successfully with no problems. Rarely do 2 files in a
row get skipped, but I've seen it once...
The behavior you are seeing has to do with packet loss
rather than the implementation of "mput". While running
an mput command, a network error will cause files to be skipped.
