Hi all,

I'm using ftplib to transfer large files to remote sites.  The process
seems to work perfectly with small files, but when the file gets to
large ~20GB I begin getting errors that sometimes seem to be non-
fatal, and other times the transfer does not complete.  I've debugged
the hell out of the code, and can't figure out what is going on..is it
the remote site?  Packet loss?

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/usr/local/sw/bin/FTPput.py", line 142, in execute

  File "/usr/local/sw/lib/FTPconn.py", line 32, in put
    return self.storbinary("STOR %s" % destfile, open(f.path, 'rb'))

  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/ftplib.py", line 422, in storbinary
    return self.voidresp()

  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/ftplib.py", line 222, in voidresp
    resp = self.getresp()

  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/ftplib.py", line 208, in getresp
    resp = self.getmultiline()

  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/ftplib.py", line 194, in getmultiline
    line = self.getline()

  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/ftplib.py", line 181, in getline
    line = self.file.readline()

IOError: [Errno 104] Connection reset by peer

I'd appreciate any input or ideas.
