Yep, that's what it always looks like.....
I did not suggest the firewall to be causative, but contributory. Then
again each time I've thought that and got on the firewall guys anyway the
problem mysteriously disappears......

just timing out waiting for the next string. Check your timeout values..

Consider also checking your firewall settings. Many firewalls will
nefarious transfers when many small files or one very large one goes
across. It happens so often with the newer firewalls it's getting to be
knee jerk reaction.

we are switching from FTPs to SFTP.
sometimes we have a large number of files to receive.
and the files have very long file names.

we use "MGET *.edi" to perform the receive.

it _appears_ that after about 10 or 12 files, the process dies. The
expect log appears that it just "filled up". if we have less than
of files, the process works just fine.

does EXPECT have some limit in the size of data it will process?
