Working  using the new

libUrlFtpUploadFile tSourcePath, tUrl, "loadDone"

for uploads to an FTP server... it works fine but

1) Timeout issues:

if I get  the following socket time out (now sure if libURL is 
generating this or the ftp server??) ... then I have to try again...
220 Welcome to's FTP server
331 Password required for gurudeva.
230 User gurudeva logged in.  Access restrictions apply.
257 "/" is current directory.
200 Type set to I.
socket timeout|6926


If I can get through this far:

200 Type set to I.
227 Entering Passive Mode (64,75,176,66,94,98)
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for 
226 Transfer complete.

then, (obviously) it works and then I can do successive uploads on that 
same connection without logging in again.

so, how to handle that time out business...??
