file showing 0 byte after ftp from windows to solaris 10 box

Dear All

I am trying to put a file from window system to solaris 10 box through ftp, but after connected to solaris 10 through window via ftp, I put a file( its a solaris package) through put command to solaris box. When I checked it on solaris box I get a file having 0 bytes. even I try to put some other file also but I get the 0 bytes file again.

Kindly help me in this issue

Regards

Amit

use ftp from the command line in DOS. after you connect issue the ftp command verbose.

Then send the file. Post the whole ftp dialog here. We need to see the errors.

while you are at your ftp prompt, type bin and hash. bin to make sure the file is copied as a binary file and hash to just be certain that its copying over. basically like adding a "-v" to your output. also, if you have a checksum, use that as well.

A priori it sounds like a disk space error on the remote box.
