[REBOL] ftp map to local drive ....

From: petr::krenzelok::trz::cz at: 7-Mar-2002 15:23

Hi, I was asked by our Lotus Notes admin if there is any kind of tool which will allow to map ftp connection as a local drive. They are so dumb, that they will try to find so obscure solution, because Lotus Notes can't simply read ftp protocol directly, nor it can write data in byte mode (only two bytes at once I was told, but I can't believe it), so .pdf attachement which will come thru RFC from our SAP system, can't be stored directly to harddrive. So the solution no 1 is to map AIX fpt drive to local drive or b) to find any kind of ODBC driver, which can accept binary data and simply write it to disc under some name :-) I told them to use small Rebol server for TCP communication or just plain and simply do the thingy directly in Rebol, but it was refused. So at the end, if they don't find any tool, they will create small Delphi app (because it can be trusted :-) and run the executable, so basically - they will achieve cgi mode functionality. Eh, is it worth a comment? :-) -pekr-
