Hi All,

ftp> get
(remote-file) /home/aruba/opmtools/was50/Was5Install.doc
(local-file) /tmp/wasinstall.doc

200 PORT command successful.
150 ASCII data connection for /home/aruba/opmtools/was50/Was5Install.doc (10.16.29.210,63350) (33280 bytes).
226 ASCII Transfer complete.
local: /tmp/wasinstall.doc remote: /home/aruba/opmtools/was50/Was5Install.doc
33318 bytes received in 0.0059 seconds (5478.55 Kbytes/s)

I don't really see what you mean here.

It looks to me like you want to FTP from a Solaris box to a Windoze box, correct?

But all you're doing is (it seems) ftping from your home directory to the /tmp directory on the SAME machine, because you're running ftp on the solaris box, not the windows box.

What you need to do is, from the WINDOWS machine, open up a cmd shell, and type

ftp xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx where the xxx's represent the solaris machines ip address. Type "lcd C:" after you've logged in to change your local directory on the Windows machine to C: before commencing the transfer. Then type your "get" command and do the actual transfer.

Cheers
ZB
