Hi,I have a copy function, in which I am using FTPClient.retrieveFileStream to get the InputStream from the file.Here when I give a small size text file it works fine, but I when I test with a real file to be used in my application that has a different extension and and size around 600-700 Kb it just hangs.i am not able to get if its a problem with the buffer size or so?

public void copyFile(String srcPath,String destPath) throws FTPException{
System.out.println("****** copyFile **********");
InputStream is = null;
// verify connection to ftp server


is = ftpClient.retrieveFileStream(srcPath);

}catch(IOException e)

if (is != null)
catch(IOException e)
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
