I see the above in Ethernet Peek. The data is received when I check the packets in the sniffer but the Windows FTP client hangs. It does not complete the save.
I am using the Windows FTP client because my Visa EA server does not allow any normal commands to be executed. Does FileZilla have a command-line client ?

Sounds like active/passive FTP problem.
Windows FTP uses active mode by default.
Active mode can often have trouble working through firewalls/routers.
When you have connected to the ftp site type the command ‘literal pasv’ which should switch the client into passive mode.
To make permanent default see here:
Better still use a decent ftp client like filezilla
Also remember if your not using sftp or scp the traffic or the password to the ftp site is not encrypted……
I have a ftp connection to a server and I am trying to analyze why even though wireshark shows that the files are transferrred successfully Windows ftp does not complete the transfer. How do I go about analyzing the problem ?
226 Transfer complete successfully.
but the windows ftp client does not save the file. It hangs. So what was working a few days back is now hanging. What type of analysis should I run ?
