The file does or doesn't exist? (I've not checked, we'll leave it in your court) ;-)

Network troubleshooting...?

So, some network troubleshooting is done. Can you actually download anything from the server, though? FTP runs on two "channels", and needs to connect to a CONTROL port and a DATA port. Possible that CONTROL is open and DATA is blocked?

Any thoughts on trouble shooting this would be appreciated.
