I do not believe that t is FPT barking at you but rather MPE itself.
Look at the file name it is trying to save TEST.1.1 and that looks a
lot like filename.group.account. I do not know how to fix this except
to transfer each file separately (get rid of mget) and specify the target
file name as ./TEST.1.1 or what ever you need.

First of all, thank you Donna for excellent instructions and for the time
that you took to do this (even if as you claim it was only 5 minutes it
was worth an eternity to me). Your message will remain an invaluable aide
memoire for this process.

However, the update has not changed the behaviour of the ftp client:

Any ideas?
