DFP 2 and my download frustration with large .ZIP files

DFP 2 and my download frustration with large .ZIP files

DFP 2.0 is extremely unreliable and fails more times than it works, when I attempt to download a large zip file. The file IS downloaded, the size looks correct, but when I attempt to open the zip file both Windows and WinRAR report the file is corrupt.

If I download the file using Ipswitch WS_FTP it works EVERYTIME !

I have set up 3 test PHP pages;


each which references the same file, but with a different name (In case it was an issue of the file name or extension). So, one requests a file without any extension, one requests a file with a plain name and .zip extension and one requests the original file name which has '.' in the name and a .zip extension.

All of this (In an .asp page) used to work great with DFP 1 !

This has brought down my commercial download site for clients and I need a solution ASAP.

NOTE : Some of my clients overseas can't download at all, but I and some of my domestic clients can download occasionally. The file size is ALWAYS correct, so it appears to be being corrupted by DFP 2 ....... aaaaarrrrgggghhhhh

PHP example;

<?php echo(realpath('Download/')); ?>

<?php require_once("../WA_DigitalFilePro/HelperPHP.php"); ?>
WA_DFP_DownloadFile("WA_DownloadResult1", "../xxxx/yyyyy/RMPs/", "", "[FileName]", false, false, false, "", "", "", "");

<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="">
<input type="submit" name="download" id="download" value="download" />

Any help/solution will surely be rewarded with vast amounts of good kharma :)

AND, the files all download first time every time if I use Dreamweaver or a direct link !
