ftp and the closing of ports.
[1/7] from: rebol:temecula-usa at: 1-Dec-2003 15:43
Hello, I've been reading some of the posts regarding rebol's ftp. I am having an issue with the closing of ftp ports. My host recently went to a 2 ftp connection limit (from the same IP) and this has caused my 5 year old ftp scripts to fail. What happens is this - I have a function that opens a port, writes a file then closes the port. It only works once however because on the next call, the ftp server complains I have reached the limit. At this point even testing is a bear because I have to wait until the server closes the port to try again. It looks like the port really isn't closed. I've attempted Brett Handley's "system/schemes/ftp/handler/cache-size: 0" but I get an invalid path value error. Any ideas? Thanks, James

He made a small mistake, try: system/schemes/ftp/cache-size: 0 Anton.

Incidentally, you can find where the ftp handler uses the cache-size setting by doing this: write clipboard:// mold system/schemes/ftp/handler Then paste into a new text file and search for cache-size . Anton.

That was a typo. It should be system/schemes/ftp/cache-size: 0 Romano's latest beta patch seems to fix the problem for me. -- Graham Chiu

Unfortunately the cache-size parameter does not help this particular issue - a bug. As Graham wrote, Romano has a patch that solves this and other problems. It is currently being tested. I'm not sure how close Romano is to releasing it. Brett.

Thank you all who sent great advice. The cache setting did the trick for my application. James
