Serv-U files being corrupted

Overview

You may find that some files are corrupted after being uploaded and downloaded in Serv-U.

Environment

All Serv-U versions

Cause 

Firewalls between the Serv-U server and the remote clients can cause these files to become corrupted.

Resolution

  1. Test the uploads and downloads directly with Serv-U, which removes the Firewall from the equation.
  2. Log in to the Serv-U server directly using a user account inside the LAN(using a connection that does not go through the firewall).
  3. Test the upload and download functions for any file corruption. If the uploads and downloads are correct then this indicates that the issue exists outside the Serv-U system and typically within the Firewall.
