In 1.5.2, I continue to have intermittent FTP failures. WxS will stop FTPing, usually for periods of exactly one hour, though occasionally shorter and very occasionally longer periods. Uploads of data to Weather Underground, CWOP, and Weather For You almost always continue on their normal schedules during these FTP "outages". Using Verizon DSL for connectivity.
I'm having similar problems with FTP on Version 1.7.5 Build 2007.02.01 I'm not sure whats causing it, but I noticed the xfers are going over in "I" binary mode. I was looking for a way to change that to "A" ASCII mode and even "PASSIVE" mode, but I'm not able to find a config screen. Does one exist?? In the "Additional Files" section, I have added 6 addition files to xfer...5 @ 60min interval and 1 @ 15mins. It seems that when I increased this from 4 to 6, is when I started to see problems. Maybe coincidence. Also, Current.htm is going out @ 5 min interval. My internet connection is Cable. I can use an external FTP program to fix the problems WxSolutions FTP causes(oh, what happens is I get files on the server(members.cox.net/kc1fx) of 0 length). What are the settings of FTP in WxSolution ??
I've had an FTP problem recently. I had the daily LCD and monthly LCD reports set to upload everyday at 12:05 AM (The default, I believe), but recently it has been uploading at 11:05 PM, and whenever I go to change it, the time reverts right back to 11:05 PM- so I can't change it. The computer I have WxSolution on doesn't recieve Windows Updates and thus switched itself to Standard Time too early this year (At the normal time the clocks used to be switched prior to this year), but I did fix the clock on the comp manually. I think my 11:05 PM problem has something to do with this, though, because I think it may have started when the clock falsely set itself a few weeks ago. Anyone have input on this issue, or whether it's a WxSolution or comp problem?
Update: I fixed the problem, I went into the "send email" section of "properties" and set that to 12:05 AM, then it let me switch the FTP upload to 12:05 AM as well. I don't know why that is, it was just simple guess and check on my part in finding a solution.
