Busted FTP since

Recommended Posts


I have been modifying all my scripts since came out and have gotten most of the old (deprecated) code changed. I'm having problems with one script that is actually a blend of snipets from others examples. My problem is that while I can get the right file info from the FTP site, I never get the file transferred?

Also, the debug message box returns the following:

Bytes read: 0

File: vd2f3e74.jdb (this is the right file)

Size: 0

Complete?: True

Successful?: False

@error: 22

@extended: 12003

Can anyone see what I'm missing? Or what the @error and @extended messages mean?

Thanks for any suggestions,

    Local $hDownload = InetGet($ftp_conn_string, $target_dir & $dl_file, 1, 1)
    Until InetGetInfo($hDownload, 2) ; Check if the download is complete.
    Local $aData = InetGetInfo($hDownload) ; Get all information.
    InetClose($hDownload) ; Close the handle to release resourcs.
