I think so, that problem is in forking into separate proces. And you'r right I running script under winnt4 an win9x platform. I use same technique which merlyn

Whole problem is that my webserver probably terminate both child and parent processes, so ftp transfer is interupted before it can end.

I will try to separate script into two independent scripts and start ftp script by system call. This should work but this isn't purist solution.
