Currently I am using XAMPP on a XP machine and FTP service is running with it. On the other end I am using a Mac. I tried to use Cyberduck and transfer a file into the FTP server it works fine; the orignal file is 104kb and after transfer there it remain as 104kb but the problem starts when I try to use CLI to do an FTP transfer.

Tranferring the same file, when I check on the server side, it becomes 106kb and it is a pdf file and I am not able to open it.

Does anyone have this same problem before? And how you manage to solve it?

Assuming CLI is command line interface. Can you confirm what commands you used, did you remember a bin command before the get? – Jane T Jun 20 '11 at 14:11

Change to the binary transfer mode using the 'bin' command.
