DLL-free FTP?

Recommended Posts

I guess the topic says it all.

Do the Auto-it base functions provide a way to perform an FTP POST without relying on the DLLs (directly or indirectly)? Here's a simple chunk of my code.

$PortLine = "PASV"
    $portResults = TEDFTPOperation($mySock, $PortLine)
    if Int(StringLeft($portResults,1)) <> 2 then
    $sent = TEDFTPOperation($mySock, "STOR "&$myFile2Send, 2048, FileGetSize(@WorkingDir&"\"&$myFile2Send)*10)
    for $i = 1 to 15 
        $lst = TEDFTPListen($mySock)
        ConsoleWrite($i&": "&$lst)
        if StringInStr($lst,"425")>0 then 
            ConsoleWrite("send failed")
And here's the relevant portion of the log on the server.

(000148) 3/29/2010 12:11:12 PM - qa1_ch (> 227 Entering Passive Mode (172,19,197,39,234,195)

(000148) 3/29/2010 12:11:12 PM - qa1_ch (> STOR Harness.21p

(000148) 3/29/2010 12:11:22 PM - qa1_ch (> 425 Can't open data connection.

It seems obvious to me that I'm missing the actual transfer of the file itself (note the delay in time... 10 seconds before the "425" results).

So far, I've tried...

  • TCPSend($mySock,FileRead(@WorkingDir&"\"&$myFile2Send))
  • FileCopy(@WorkingDir&"\"&$myFile2Send, "ftp:\\"&$IPserver&":"&$myPort)
  • ConsoleWrite("@@@"&StdinWrite($mySock,FileRead(@WorkingDir&"\"&$myFile2Send)))
And it didn't get me anywhere.

Any other options I haven't tried?

AutoIt always uses DLLs. Even the standard TCP-functions rely on functions of the Windows-API. It really would be easier to use the WinHTTP / WinInet-DLLs to access an FTP-Server, but of course you can create a plain implementation. Documentation is here (includes links to the underlying RFCs) I just don't see a reason to do that when MS has already done it for you.

Well it seems I've found my own answer.

TEDFTPOperation($mySock, "TYPE I")
    $NextConn = TEDFTPOperation($mySock, "PASV")
    $dcAddr = StringSplit(TEDFTPaddressTranslate(TEDFTPAddressExtract($NextConn)),":")
    Local $dataConn = TCPConnect($dcAddr[1],$dcAddr[2])
    $sent = TEDFTPOperation($mySock, "STOR "&$myFile2Send)
Works great for what I needed. Edited by QA Stooge
