Strange problem with samba

Hi everyone

I have a strange problem. Here is my setup:

1. I have a Fedora FTP server (where a 3rd party is uploading files).
2. I then open an ftp session (from a Solaris 10 server) to the FTP server and "get" all the files (place files in directory X).
3. I have a samba share set up on the Solaris server (on directory X) so that Windows clients can access the files that I've transferred from the FTP server.

When I open the Samba share from the Windows clients, I cannot open the images (appears to be corrupt). However, when I obtain the files straight from the FTP server (open ftp session from Windows client to FTP server), it works.

I've tried changing the mode to ASCII when I ftp the files to the Solaris server, but still the Windows clients cannot open images on the Samba share.

Has anyone else had this problem before?

==============================================
UPDATE: I've just tried it again with the "ascii" mode and it appears to have worked.

ftpconfig(1M)						  System Administration Commands					     ftpconfig(1M)

NAME
ftpconfig - set up anonymous FTP SYNOPSIS
ftpconfig [ftpdir] ftpconfig -d ftpdir DESCRIPTION
The ftpconfig script is executed by the super user to set up anonymous FTP. Anonymous FTP allows users to remotely log on to the FTP server by specifying the user name ftp or anonymous and the user's email address as password. The anonymous users are logged on to the FTP Server and given access to a restricted file area with its own file system root. See chroot(2). The FTP area has its own minimal system files. This command will copy and set up all the components needed to operate an anonymous FTP server, including creating the ftp user account, creating device nodes, copying /usr/lib files, and copying timezone data. The passwd and group files set up have been stripped down to prevent malicious users from finding login names on the server. The anonymous file area will be placed under ftpdir. If the ftp user account already exists, then the current FTP area is used, and the system files in it are updated. All other files are left untouched. This command should be run to update the anonymous FTP area's configuration whenever a system patch is installed, or the system is upgraded. OPTIONS
-d Create a new or update an existing ftpdir without creating or updating the ftp user account. Use this option when creating guest FTP user accounts. OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: ftpdir The absolute pathname of the directory under which the anonymous FTP area is set up. EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion 1 Improper usage of the command 2 Command failed ATTRIBUTES
