To solve your problem for the time being you can ftp your file or tar file (if it involves a series of files) to another solaris server which does ftp correctly to ur PC and then in turn ftp to ur PC.

As andryk stated, hash is a good way to see if the FTP is progressing. If the file is binary then you must state BIN before doing a transfer. It is worth a try, however, I doubt this is a problem since the file would transfer successfully but be left unreadable. Is the destination system a Windows box? Is the source system a SPARC boX?
