Forum OpenACS Q&A: VFS and FTP

Posted by Cheng-Yi Hsu on
I got a situation that need to write some files from aolserver to a remote ftp server, the condition is I can not use NFS mount and must catch file writing error.
tclvfs seems can solve this problem, after evaluate tclvfs, I can read the content of zip file and http web page, but I can not connect to a remote ftp server.
Any idea ?

Now works,
I can use 
package require vfs::ftp
vfs::ftp::Mount ftp://username:password@hostname/mydir mydir

glob mydir
file copy mydir/doc1 doc2

Really interesting

Try exec'ing ncftpput. If you have ncftpput installed (and many Linux box already do), this should be by far the easiest way to send a few files to an ftp server.
