Except I don't know how to do that. :) I get the error using different OSs, different versions of REBOL and from two different ftp servers. If it's a bug, I'm sure someone must have hit it before me. Anyway, I've found I get an empty block returned if I use a port instead of an URL, so that provides a way around it. Would've been easier using an URL though... Carl.
