    Ok. I feel like a complete idiot asking thing, because to me, it seems like a completely stupid question, but I am going to ask because my host told me this could be my problem.

    I have a folder that is 10.2MB and I need to upload it to my server. EVERY SINGLE TIME i try to upload it, it times out. EVERY SINGLE TIME. My host says its not their fault. They said it COULD be my ISP or it could be that my computer has some kind of setting stopping it.. This doesnt sound right, buti guess its possible

    So is there any kind ofsecurity setting, or bandwith limiting setting for uploads on a macbook pro>????

    I'm not an expert here but I know enough to be dangerous as they say lol. Couple of questions first.

    What FTP program are you using?

    What are you using for your connection? DSL/Cable/other? When uploading the file does it stop at a specific spot? like 5mb in or 9.99mb completed?

    It does sound like a setting of some sort, I am unaware of any on the MBP specifically but is there some setting in our FTP program limiting the size? or is it a trail version with some restrictions? (just tossing out idea's :))



    Any additional information would help to see if myself or anyone here can help solve this :)

    If you don't know what something is, it helps to search it in Google ;)

    http://cyberduck.ch/

    Or you can try FileZilla. I use Transmit (but it's not free) and it works well because it supports WebDAV which iDisk uses.

    umm I'd rather not waste my time googling a useless comment that clearly is well, useless. I already said i was happy with my FTP. No need to use another. NOT a fan of filezilla either. My question was about the Macbook pro. Is there a setting IN THE MACBOOK PRO because i know theres nothing wrong with my FTP

    A year Later

    Ok, I realize this is a year later, but I am having the same problem with my MacBook Pro. No large files will upload, either in the email, FTP or S3 environments.

    So. Anyone else?
