File transfer via ftp in iCMTGIS PRO

” ‘Im trying to get the data off the iPad by using the FTP function in the software. I can login to the ftp site and am able to see the directory, but when I try to transfer the file, I receive a stream error in iCMTGIS Pro.”
We asked this user to use iTunes to do the file transfer as we were not sure what caused the stream error. We know that some other users are able to ftp files back and forth between their PC and their iCMTGIS II, iCMTGIS III and iCMTGIS PRO apps.
Today Keith emailed us that he had figured this out, and that the following information might be helpful to other users:
“This particular web site was configured as a ‘blind ftp’ server, which means that once you upload something, you can no longer see it, nor download it. For anonymous FTP sites, it prevents the site from being abused by folks. The file in question did actually upload the first time, it just didn’t show in the directory and when I tried to upload it again, the file as already there and that’s what caused the stream error.”
Thank you, Keith!
