ftp file corruption

I'm having problems down/uploading files from/to my webhost, the contents of the files are corrupted somehow during the transfer. This has opened using both ftp from the command line and also gftp. I'm not sure why this is happening.

It means I still have to boot into windows to get any work done which I don't really want to do as I have got to the stage now where I have migrated everything to Slackware and I find it a bit annoying I have to go back for this.

I have been careful to set ascii or binary modes so I don't think it is this. Could someone point me in the right direction please?

hmmm - if you are transfering binary files (remember anything compressed is binary, HTML is ascii), you must switch to binary mode before the transfer. Usually > bin will take care of it. Of course, you've eliminated that so I'm not sure what else it could be.

They're just html files which I transfer as ascii. I have found now though that if I transfer them one at a time everything's fine. It just seems to be if I transfer them in bulk I get problems. I think what I'll do is just download them as I need them in future.
