ftp question - Mac Networking

Hi, hoping someone can help here - i use two ftp clients atm : Fetch 4.0.3 and Transmit 2.6 both under osx. The problem is that Stuffit Expander will not expand files that have been transfered by Transmit. I'm talking about split files: ".sit.1" and ".sit.2" and ".sit.3" etc..etc However, when i transfer the same files using Fetch, i can easily drag the ".sit.1" file onto Stuffit Expander and it joins/expands the whole archive! Why does Transmit not handle split .sit files? Does it corrupt them? Anyone??? Apreciate any help, thanks....

    Hi, hoping someone can help here - i use two ftp clients atm : Fetch
    4.0.3 and Transmit 2.6 both under osx.

    The problem is that Stuffit Expander will not expand files that have

    and ".sit.2" and ".sit.3" etc..etc

    However, when i transfer the same files using Fetch, i can easily drag
    the ".sit.1" file onto Stuffit Expander and it joins/expands the whole
    archive!

    Why does Transmit not handle split .sit files? Does it corrupt them?

    Anyone??? Apreciate any help, thanks.

    I would guess that Transmit probably downloads the files as ASCII
    rather than binary, thereby corrupting them. But that's just a guess.

    Hi, yes i though the same, so i forced it into binary mode and still
    got the same result.. of course, it downloads (unsplit) SIT files
    perfectly well. It's just the ones that have been pre-split to make
    downloading more convenient, the ".sit.1" etc..etc.. files.

    I've looked in Transmit config for suffix settings, but nope..! Hoping
    someone can help.

    Thanks for replying

    You might try contacting the authors directly at:
    <http://www.panic.com/transmit/support.html>

    They have been very good about answering my questions/problems in the
    past. If it is something that does not work properly, they will admit
    it and probably correct it in the next release.
