[REBOL] FTP Absolute Path Problem Re:

I don't think this is an FTP issue; I believe the issue has to do with your
machine's setup. Your machine recognizes your user name and sets your HOME
path. Your machine forces FTP to prepend the HOME path. I could be wrong,
but I don't think FTP can work around this. This is a security feature of
You could always devise a work-around like %../../<path> or creating a
soft-link (in your HOME directory) to the directory you want.

Subject: [REBOL] FTP Absolute Path Problem
I'm having the following problem:
I want to load a file that resides on a server under the absolute path of
/var/local/ecdr/data/. However, when I use the ftp command, it always
want to do relative addressing from my home directory.
I have tried:
records: load ftp://ecdr:[ecdr--130--102--200--43]/var/local/ecdr/data/cdr_out
records: load ftp://ecdr:[ecdr--130--102--200--43]//var/local/ecdr/data/cdr_out
records: load join ftp://ecdr:[ecdr--130--102--200--43]
but it always tells me that rebol is looking for
. In other words, it is looking under
/home/cribbsj/var/local/ecdr/data/cdr_out, which, of course, does not
In short, does anyone know how to make the ftp command use absolute path
addressing as opposed to relative path addressing?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
