Um.. you're right, it doesn't. *shrug*

I didn't see anywhere, but I get the impression from the script that the FTP connection stays open until you send a print -p bye command and the only commands that actually go to the FTP are print -p commands. Is this correct?

Thanks, Kevin

Hi, this script looks pretty cool, but I am after something to recursively PUT files, rather than to recursively GET them. I have not had a close look at the script yet, but expect it to be pretty complex to understand.

I have just purchased a nas device for backup purposes. it has a ftp server, and I would like to send all the files from my small linux server up to it for backup. I cannot use tar to make a large file and send up one file only because there is a 4 gig file limit on the nas device.

I realise that some time has passed since the script was posted, but I hope someone can help.

Thanks in advance, Robert

Recursive put is trivial anyway. Read our ftp scripting faq article.

i give you credit for what you have done. Good job.
On the other hand, there are ppl who might not want to "re-invent the wheel". So using tools already built in with such functions may be their choice of solving their problem..anyway, to each his own.

when trying to use the script, I get this error:

hardfeed.ksh[74]: things: subscript out of range
WARNING: badly formatted line in directory listing for:
attempting outside-to-inside scan

hardfeed.ksh[74]: things: subscript out of range
WARNING: badly formatted line in directory listing for:
attempting outside-to-inside scan

when I run it this way:

hardfeed -drv server username directory

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!!
