Is there a way to measure the packet loos of an upload or download? Does SmartFTP have access to that part of the protocol? If not available this would be a great enhancement to the product.

Hello ..

The FTP protocol is located in the application layer in the OSI model. It doesn't know anything about packet losses. What you should look at is the Network layer. For a rough estimate ping the host to see if you have any packet losses.
