FTP Error 426

I have been getting these errors as of late. I checked with my ISP to see if they were having some sort of issue. Their reply was as follows:

Those codes are typically caused by dropped traffic or latency. The FTP protocol does not have error recovery, so if there is a single dropped packet or a delay in server response it can cause the process to halt with that code. I would suggest that if your application supports it to use SCP instead of FTP, it is more reliable and is encrypted.

I am not sure what SCP is, but I assume it would not be compatible with Cumulus any, right?

SCP is "Secure copy" and Cumulus does not offer that. You would have to use an external application such as WinSCP.

Any idea what causes me to get the following errors every day between the hours of midnight up through possibly as long as 7:00 A.M.?

7/6/2017 12:22:34 AM : FTP Connect Timeout
7/6/2017 12:22:34 AM : FTP Connect Error, Error code = 426

You would have to ask your service provider, but I assume they would give the same answer as before. They appear to be blaming it on the connection between you and their server.

Steve,

Thanks. I kind of expected this reply, but I thought I would try you first. If I can get a reply that means anything from Cox Communication's tech support, I will pass it along to you.
