Post Ftp Failure Reply with quote

I'm using basically the example ftp script. My ftpfileexists works but the
ftpget fails. The scheduler is telling me that the download failed with "error 123" and the script dies. Has anyone seen this before? I can get the file on the command line via standard FTP..

"error 123" is reported by your FTP server. Many FTP servers use that code for insufficient privileges. Before downloading a file, 24x7 attempts to set the current directory on the FTP server to the file directory. Check with your system administrator that you have enough permissions to access contents of this directory (and all subdirectories in the file path).

Thanks for the quick reply. That's strange, the ftp server is anonymous, also, I can get the file via FTP from the command line, as far as I know, anyone can.
Is it that 24x7 doesn't have the right permissions???

Thanks for any more insight you might have.

Even if you can get that file via FTP from the command line does not automatically mean that you can get the contents of the directory where that file is stored. Make sure you permissions both for the directory and for the file.

Note: 24x7 needs to set the current directory in order to search for the file before it attempts to download it. This allows automating various FTP "file watch" jobs.

Workaround: If you like you can automate command line FTP by creating a FTP script than run it like "FTP my_ftp_server_name_here /s my_script.ftp". Then make 24x7 to run that command whenever desired.

Sample file
-----------------------------------
USER anonymous
PWD name@company.com
GET /some_dir_here/some_file_here
QUIT

Note that different FTP utilities support different syntax. Please run "FTP /?" command for more details.
