It was a 32 bit NT server. Also my perl program hung as well. I compiled it with perl2exe, so I don't know if the perl module has the same issue.
It would connect, but it hung on the transfer, it was strange.

The Microsoft FTP client interacts directly with the keyboard buffer, and as a result can only be run reliably from a "console" type executable shell - a shell which has a "Windows keyboard device". Scripting is possible however using batch command files (3rd party FTP clients may not suffer from the same limitation). I recommend using the "-s" option such as "ftp -s <script> | servername" with a command text file or VBScript to drive FTP with from a text command file - if you are using 64-bit Windows make sure that you run the VBScript engine in SysWow64 - not the default engine in System32. Hope this helps.

I logged into a PC using logmein over the internet, then from that PC I logged into UV (on an NT server) using Wintergate and then once logged In, I did the DOS command to get to dos, and tried to use ftp from there. The strange part was that the ftp process hung as well, the next day, they needed to reboot the UV NT server because Wintergate wouldn't Let anyone log onto the server as well. So, there a bunch of potential culprits here....No one mentioned that it as asking for a deny/allow on the server either, so I really don't know. My workaround by having the PC do the ftp and dropping it into a folder that the UV server had access to worked, so I never looked into it further. _______________________________________________ U2-Users mailing list U2-Users@listserver.u2ug.org http://listserver.u2ug.org/mailman/listinfo/u2-users
