Error description

  • When using cCURL to upload files to a mailbox in IBM Sterling
    B2B Integrator using FTPS and the upload fails with a very large
    file, the resume option does not work. The file gets uploaded
    from the beginning when resuming the upload.
    
    The cURL output shows the following from the server (SBI):
    < 451 Requested action aborted: session in inconsistent state.
    
    NOTE: the upload succeeds but it just starts from the beginning
    of the file when attempting to resume the upload.
    To resume the upload, you must add the cURL command
    option  "-C -" per the cURL documentation.
