FTP problem


im using pure-ftp instead of pro-ftp but im having a problem

When trying to retrieving a file just one file I get this

STATUS:> Receiving: cgiperl.htm --> c:\junk\cgiperl.htm
COMMAND:> PASV
227 Entering Passive Mode (66,246,52,2,73,138)
COMMAND:> RETR cgiperl.htm
STATUS:> Connecting data socket...
503 ASCII resume is unsafe, please delete the file first
ERROR:> Can't initiate data transfer
STATUS:> Failed to receive cgiperl.htm
STATUS:> Disconnect: Friday 13:56:56 01-17-2003

then after that, it wants to reconnect to the site and then this

STATUS:> Connecting data socket...
150 Accepted data connection
COMMAND:> ABOR
STATUS:> Received 0 bytes, Abnormal termination
COMMAND:> CWD /www
226-Options: -l
226 8 matches total
STATUS:> Retrieving directory listing...
COMMAND:> PASV
226 Since you see this ABOR must've succeeded
STATUS:> Error opening data socket
STATUS:> Receiving: cgiperl.htm --> c:\junk\cgiperl.htm
COMMAND:> PASV
250 OK. Current directory is /www
STATUS:> Error opening data socket
STATUS:> Failed to receive cgiperl.htm
STATUS:> Disconnect: Friday 13:57:01 01-17-2003

Whats it doing or what is this error? Im using windows CuteFTP to retrieve files from my linux box and this is what it gives me.... it wont retrieve the file

The line that intrigues me is:

503 ASCII resume is unsafe, please delete the file first

What kind of error message is this? Pure-ftp is telling you to DELETE the file that you want to download or is Cute-FTP giving this error message? The file that you are trying to download is cgiperl.htm right? I would try and find out what ASCII resume is. Have you tried to download other files besides cgiperl.htm? Have your tried to connect using ftp in DOS? Maybe it is a Cute-FTP issue? I don't know if this reply helped but this is what I would do to troubleshoot this situation.
