Problem Description
I'm setting up an ftp server to use with BackupEDGE using Xinuos 10 as the ftp repository. When testing media, I get:

> REST 262144
< 350 Restarting at 262144. Send STORE or RETRIEVE to initiate transfer.
> RETR backupedge.txt.0
< 150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for 'backupedge.txt.0' (524288 bytes).
* Maxdownload = 10241
* Getting file with size: 10241
* Remembering we are in dir ""
> ABOR

Cause
The actual failure is in the ABOR (abort) command. The default ftp program provide with Xinuos Open Server 10 apparently does not support the abort command.

Solution
It is advised to download and install ProFTPD. Use this as your defailt ftp program.
Notes
Please note FreeBSD 10.x also will display this behavior. Again, ProFTPD must be used.
