I've been doing long uploads the past couple days. (35,000 html pages) wsftp_pro slows way down and I start getting NAV messages about blocked incoming trojan attempts one after another. Names of trojans too numerous to mention... At first they were most transcout trojans and now I see everything. Would this just be a symptom of running my ftp program over a long period? It's gettting to be a nuisance as I think it is causing occaisional errors interrupting the uploads. I wonder if the slowdown is done my my host...it starts fast and gradually slows down to a trickle. I've run avast virus cleaner and norton, checked for transcout related files. Nothing. How can I be sure a trojan isn't getting through? Just make me nervous with all the attacks. Usually around 6 of them one after another every few minutes. Others more randomly. Also I had intended to switch my new computer over to Avast soon when the NAV trial expires...but since Norton seems to be blocking trojans...(or maybe it isn't !) I'm hesitant to remove it. looking forward to all clues to ftp security ...please spare me the ftp is a terrible protocol lecture...I want to know what I can do about it.
