FPT problem when reading file

 [1/4] from: wonko::algonet::se at: 8-Sep-2003 18:27

Hello! I have a problem when trying to read a file on an FTP server. Trying to read a file I know exists fails since the server seems to think that I try to request a read of a directory and not a file. I am also almost certain that the file permissions are OK. The FTP server is FileZilla.
>> print system/version
>> system/schemes/ftp/passive: true
== true
>> read ftp://username:[password--ip-address]/Archive/IndexByDate.txt
connecting to: ip-address ** User Error: Server error: tcp 550 Directory not found ** Near: read ftp://username:[password--ip-address]/Archive/IndexByDate.txt
>> read ftp://username:[password--ip-address]/Archive/

Could someone help me solve this problem please? Best regards, Peter Carlsson

What about other files in the same directory or in a different directory? Can you get another FTP client to access the file and see its permissions? (perhaps try SmartFTP.) Anton.

When REBOL attempts to download a file using FileZilla Server, it sends a LIST command instead of RETR command. I'm not quite sure why that happens. FileZilla Server then responds to the LIST command by complaining that the file is not a directory. Elan Anton Rolls wrote:

Hello Anton! Sorry that I forgot to mention that this also happens with other files in the same directory as well as for different directories. I have also tried with SmartFTP but then everything works fine. Best regards, Peter Carlssson
