Help with Windows Command line FTP....
I am trying to use windows dos prompt FTP to transfer a file up to my ISP. I can do this using a FTP program, but in this case I'll end up writing a script to do this one file automatically. At this point I am having an issue with just manually entering commands and hope that someone can help.
I start ftp from the command prompt in the proper directory. I then log in to my ISP and enter my user ID and password.
Next I use the "put" command to send this small file to my ISP, however all I get following the "put" command is the following line and it hangs at that point
> 200 Port command succesful
When I look at my web account I can see the filename and extension, but the file is empty. I transfer the same file with WS_FTP and it works fine. Since the file name is getting through I would think I don't have an issue with blocked ports in a firewall, etc.
If anyone can help me out, I'd really appreciate it.
I have tried both binary and ascii formats - same result.
Thanks very much,
