unix directories should NEVER have spaces.

but try passing in a dir w/ spaces sourounded w/ single quotes.

I just replaced the old script with a new one. It supports spaces in dirertory names as well as it supports spaces file names. I don't expect that leading or trailing spaces will work. And I only tested cases with a single space between words.

Getting Error

Hi I am trying to use the script and I getting the following error:

FATAL ERROR: timed out waiting for:

I am using the -rdvs parameters

HardFeed is timing out as it tries to read the remote directory. Is this a very large remote directory? Or a very busy ftp server? You might try adjusting the line:
to a larger value. But if the directory has tens of thousands of files something else could go wrong. I have never tested it on a super large directory.

Could you please explain how these 2 scripts work as I am getting the following error when trying to execute HardFeed Part 2[369]: OPT_CMDS>i: The specified number is not valid for this command.

I am passing the ftpserver, userid of the server and directory path on the remote server where the file is located at. I appreciate your help. Thanks

They aren't two scripts. It is one long script. It was too long to post in a single post. Put the pieces together and run the script.

Thank you for immediate response. It worked and copied the files, But does not retain the date and time of the file which is on the remote server. Am I missing something.... Thanks,
