Post FTPFileExists returns False Reply with quote

The FTPFileExists command in the following script does not return correctly. The FTPDeleteFIle command works. The file is on the FTP server and the case is exact. If I check a file on the root directory it works found, but when I try to check a file in a directory it always returns FALSE.

dim server,string,"172.22.3.229"
dim user, string,"user"
dim password, string,"password"
dim found, boolean
dim DelFile, string
Set Delfile,"C:\\htdocs\\Intranet\\OEF\\FDFPrint\PDF176.fdf"

FTPFileExists( Server, User, Password, DelFile, found )

FTPDeleteFile( Server, User, Password, DelFile)

You don't have permission for one of the subdirectories in the path to your file and that is causing the error. Contact your sysadmin to obtain necessary permissions.

I double check permission on my FTP server (WAR FTP ver 1.65 on NT 4.0) and I have full access to all directories. ran script in several different files in several directories with same problem. Could there be a problem using the WAR FTP server?

I don't know whether this is because of using the WAR FTP server.

Have you tried using FTPDir statement to get the list of files? If not try the following:
Dim file_list, string
Dim file_exists, boolean
FTPDir "C:\\htdocs\\Intranet\\OEF\\FDFPrint\PDF176.fdf", file_list
isNotEqual file_list, "", file_exists

I'm using the FTPSync command to copy the files from the FTP server then using DIR (NOT FTPDIR) to verify the file has been copied before I delete them from the FTP server. The FTPFileExist is a extra step to ensure the FTPDeleteFile command is going to run. I've a work around by creating a new user that root is the directory i'm deleting from and this works fine.
