RE: FTP transfers garbled up

Hi Mark,
I've had same problems after FTP transfer. 
Actually it seems, in reality there is no problem. What you see is the language of your keyboard related. 
Using an english keyboad may be totaly different from what you see at a spanish keyboard.
Espacially the special signs are different.
Best regards,
Herman Kox

Hi Mark, I'm may be a little late on this thread.
But I have som question that may be arrise a clue.

You say that destination server "seems to be" linux/unix, mey be is a good
idea to confirm that.

you say that you use FTP_API to send files to several servers, and of course
several files.
Is this new case, a server where you never send a file allready ?

Problem 1 and problem 2 occurs on this new ftp server, that you as/400
connect ??

Best Regards.
