: Hi again Mark,

: I did try other servers - they seem fine and Yahoo was ok with 2 of my smaller portfolios. Maybe my main portfolio has become corrupted or ?? It contains about 250 tickers and it's very slow or it stops completely and I get a "WSAE 10054" box. If I click off the box the update will attempt to start again. I haven't done anything new other than add the same ticker with a new file name to distinguish it from an earlier buy with another brokerage house. The file name is fairly large - 11 characters before the dat suffix - could that be a problem?

: I've gone through the portfolio carefully to be sure all the tickers are valid and they are. I've used FM from the very early versions and I've never run into this before. Any thoughts??

: Cheers,

: Derek

Hi Derek,
The error code you're seeing is probably the reason for this problem.
Here's the error code documentation:

Connection reset by peer.
A existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host. This normally results if the peer application on the remote host is suddenly stopped, the host is rebooted, or the remote host used a "hard close" (see setsockopt for more information on the SO_LINGERoption on the remote socket.)

This may not be Yahoo or your ISP, it may just be some server you happen
to be going through on the way to Yahoo. Hopefully it is a temporary
problem. If not, you can try doing a traceroute, or getting your ISP to
help you do this, and see if there is some bottleneck between you and Yahoo.
