I need some help, for the last few months I've been having problems with Smartftp v3.0. I'm connecting to my friends FTP which is running over SSL (Explicit), I have the ability to open 2 threads and almost all the time, with every file I try to download it stops, freezes, drops the connect and then starts downloading again but then will do it over and over and over again. sometime it could be 20kb into download or 13mb into download. It is really puzzling me because this had been happening since version 2.5 for me and I stopped using it. I've now purchased for v3.0 and still getting the same problem and now doubting this product.
I have used other FTP programs to download from the server and only smartftp gives this problem! I'm running no firewall on my router but have ZoneAlarm running on my machine but please let me note that I was getting this problem before I even had ZA installed.

Why is this only happening with in Smartftp I have no idea but I'm now getting frustrating not being able to use a program that keeps freezing!
It's a network problem. It means the server stops sending data after 60 seconds or the data never arrives at your computer. Try to uninstall Zonealaram and try again. Check your router. Try to download from another server and see if you have the same problem.
Post the logs from SmartFTP and your other FTP client.
I downloaded the same file:

Please post the complete log from both clients.
I don't see that it's necessary to see my FTP client connect to the server, that is from connection to download. You can see there is an issue and flashfxp only gave me that which I have not touched. There is something wrong but there is nothing more you will see from the rest of the log accept the connecting info - totally irrelevant!
I'm sorry but we can only help you if you provide the information we request.
