?script-name=p atch-ftp-226-handling.r Now I'm not sure you'll have any luck given your reply to Carl about the cutting of the NLST part. I can only hope that with all three patch files run together your problem will be solved holistically :-) Testing the error handling defect is a pain because as Romano pointed out it is hard to replicate. I hope though you have a test case to run unpatched vs patched. Here is mine (where test-a and test-b should not exist): site: ftp://USER:[PASS--codeconscious--com]/ print mold read site make-dir join site %test-a/test-b/ print mold read site probe read join site %test-a/test-b/ print mold read site probe read join site %test-a/ print mold read site probe read join site %test-b/ print mold read site Running this unpatched cause the FTP protocol to fail on the last line - saying it can't login. After patching it seems to work as expected except that the make-dir problem Romano described already has not been changed - I haven't got a patch for that yet! Regards, Brett.
