Same result... but I just figured that it's not just manipulation which goes wrong this way (I should have checked the directory contents before posting. Sorry...). When it's empty or I input a wrong filepath, I get "User Error: Server error: tcp 200 PORT command successful.". So the 200 error is forgivable. But every time I access a correct file, I get 226 Quota errors. And this only happens with two servers: A local ProFTPD and an a remote ProFTPD ftp-server. Others work just fine (including other ProFTPD servers). I have no firewall set up. Could this be a ProFTPD config problem? I tried 'trace/net on' and the following output was generated when I tried to access a file in a directory:
>> print read join ftp-dir ["<dir-to-read-from>"]
URL Parse: <user> <pass> <url> none none <dir-to-read-from> Net-log: ["Opening" "tcp" "for" "FTP"] Net-log: [ none ["220" "230"]] Net-log: {220 ProFTPD 1.2.1 Server (<server>)]} Net-log: [ ["USER" port/user] "331"] Net-log: "331 Password required for <user>."

Irrelevant now, but it is the url-syntax you mentioned which I use.

Well, it didn't... dammit :-) Regards, Henrik Mikael Kristensen
