FTP 425 No data connection

Post by MaxV » Wed Mar 01, 2017 6:26 pm

Hi,
I use:
########CODE to copy and paste#######
on mouseUp
put empty into field 1
put libURLftpCommand("PWD","ftp.maxvessi.net") & return after field 1
put libURLftpCommand("STAT","ftp.maxvessi.net") & return after field 1
put libURLftpCommand("CWD http://www.maxvessi.net","ftp.maxvessi.net") & return after field 1
put libURLftpCommand("NLST ","ftp.maxvessi.net") & return after field 1
put libURLftpCommand("MLSD","ftp.maxvessi.net") & return after field 1
put libURLftpCommand("QUIT","ftp.maxvessi.net") & return after field 1
end mouseUp
#####END OF CODE generated by http://tinyurl.com/j8xf3xq #####

and I get:

Code: Select all

257 "/" is your current location
211 https://www.pureftpd.org/
250 OK. Current directory is /www.maxvessi.net
425 No data connection
425 No data connection
221 Logout.
What is wrong in my code?

You are requesting a directory listing, and FTP passes that listing, as well as file transfers, over another connection - the data connection (basically, just another port).. Take a look at the libURLSetFTPListCommand command, as I believe that will do all the work for you (I could be wrong, as I ended up writing my own FTP library to overcome the faults of the built-in library)..

The solution is that you have to use the URL method:

########CODE to copy and paste#######
on mouseUp
put empty into field 1
libURLSetFTPListCommand "LIST"
put urlencode("user@aruba.it") into myUser
put URL ("ftp://" &myUser& ":password@ftp.maxvessi.net/www.maxvessi.net/") & return after field 1
end mouseUp

This way you get:

Code: Select all
