Multiple FTP Upload Socket Error

I am pragmatically trying to upload a list of files from my client machine to a proFTPd server I have running on Ubuntu. Every time I get several (around fifty) files into the transfer, I get the following error:

Connection reset by peer: socket write error
I am able to remotely upload 25,000 small files of ~ 1K in size, but when I go to upload hundreds of 2-4 Mb files, I get a socket write error.

Am I using up all available sockets before they can be released? If so, how do I release the sockets? If not, what does this error mean and why am I getting it?

Though I am still receiving this error, I have built some controls into my code to mitigate it's effects. I think it is my ISP (Comcast) that is causing this as I have changed routers, changed FTP servers, and changed Java FTP librarys I have used in my code.


ftp, proftpd, ubuntu
