Is FTPS or FTP over SSL possible in AutoIT

Recommended Posts

Graeme

Hi,

I'm trying to download a file from a secure site that doesn't allow ftp. I've been trying to use FTPS but I can't find anything about FTPS (or FTP over SSL) except one reference that was a few years ago. So I'm wondering if things have changed. I've trawled through WinHttp and FF but can't find anything.

If anyone has some good ideas I'd love to hear from you. here is one example of what I tried, and it seemed to work at first but then there was no response at the end:(

#include <string.au3>
#include <inet.au3>
#include <guiconstants.au3>
#include <winhttp.au3>

Dim $hw_connect, $hw_open, $h_openRequest, $LocalIP, $M

$LocalIP = "https://www.example.org"

$hw_open = _WinHttpOpen()

$hw_connect = _WinHttpConnect($hw_open, $LocalIP)

$h_openRequest = _WinHttpOpenRequest($hw_connect, "GET", "programname.exe")
MsgBox(0,"",$hw_connect&@error)
$M = _WinHttpSetCredentials($h_openRequest, $WINHTTP_AUTH_TARGET_SERVER, $WINHTTP_AUTH_SCHEME_BASIC, "username", "password")
MsgBox(0,"",$M)
$M= _WinHttpSendRequest($h_openRequest)
MsgBox(0,"",$M)

$M= _WinHttpReceiveResponse($h_openRequest)
MsgBox(0,"",$M& " " &@error)

Graeme,

Please pay attention to where you post - the "Examples" section where you started this thread is clearly marked: "This is NOT a general support forum!". I have moved the thread for you, but would ask you to be more careful in future. ;)

I don't know if you've searched thru the forums yet, but if not, try it. Use ftps as the keyword.

Melba23 - Thanks for moving my question to the right place. Sorry that I made that error.

SoundComputerguy - Sorry I didn't specifiy that the forums were one of the places I had been also trawling through - my eyes are going square:( Any fresh ideas very welcome.

WinHTTP doesn't support FTP protocol in any form.

Don't know if it would get you where you want to go but you could try using psftp.exe (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html).

Would need to have psftp.exe in the working directory or get it in the path of the script and you would need a separate script file for use by psftp in the working directory as well.

Script file contains the commands you want to run through psftp (example.scr):

cd /home/user

put test.txt

get test2.txt

quit

Would call it via autoit with:

Run(@ComSpec & " /c" & "psftp.exe user@hostname -pw password -b test.scr","",@SW_HIDE)

The -b test.scr is what calls the psftp script.

Hi Wakillon,

I downloaded the libcurl.au3 etc but I can't make even the example files work? What could I be doing wrong?

Try this way :

#include <libcURL.au3>

Global $bCallbackBuffer

_url2file ( 'ftps://...../filename.txt', @DesktopDir & '\filename.txt' )

Func _url2file($sURL, $sFilePath)
    ConsoleWrite ( '$sURL : ' & $sURL & @Crlf )
    Local $hcurl = _curl_easy_init()
    If $hcurl Then
        Local $tCURLSTRUCT_URL = DllStructCreate("char[" & StringLen($sURL) + 1 & "]")
        DllStructSetData($tCURLSTRUCT_URL, 1, $sURL)
        _curl_easy_setopt($hcurl, $CURLOPT_URL, DllStructGetPtr($tCURLSTRUCT_URL))
        _curl_easy_setopt($hcurl, $CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1)
        _curl_easy_setopt($hcurl, $CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1)
        _curl_easy_setopt($hcurl, $CURLOPT_NOPROGRESS, 1)

        _curl_easy_setopt ( $hcurl, $CURLOPT_PORT, 990 ) ; Port 990 for the FTPS control channel, and 989 for the FTPS data channel
        _curl_easy_setopt ( $hcurl, $CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0 )
        _curl_easy_setopt ( $hcurl, $CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 1 )
        _curl_easy_setopt ( $hcurl, $CURLOPT_USE_SSL, $CURLOPT_FTPSSLAUTH )
        _curl_easy_setopt ( $hcurl, $CURLOPT_USERPWD, 'username:password' ) ; set your username and password
        _curl_easy_setopt ( $hcurl, $CURLOPT_SSLVERSION, 3 )

        $bCallbackBuffer = ""
        Local $handle = DllCallbackRegister("_my_fwrite", "uint:cdecl", "ptr;uint;uint;ptr")
        _curl_easy_setopt($hcurl, $CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION, DllCallbackGetPtr($handle))
        _curl_easy_setopt($hcurl, $CURLOPT_WRITEDATA, 0)
        _curl_easy_perform($hcurl)
        DllCallbackFree($handle)
        _curl_easy_cleanup($hcurl)
        If $bCallbackBuffer Then
            ConsoleWrite("+ $bCallbackBuffer: " & $bCallbackBuffer & @CRLF)
            Local $fh = FileOpen($sFilePath, 18)
            If $fh <> -1 Then
                FileWrite($fh, $bCallbackBuffer)
                FileClose($fh)
            EndIf
        EndIf
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>_url2file

Func _my_fwrite($buffer, $size, $nmemb, $stream)
    Local $vData = DllStructCreate("byte[" & $size * $nmemb & "]", $buffer)
    $bCallbackBuffer &= DllStructGetData($vData, 1)
    Return $size * $nmemb
EndFunc   ;==>_my_fwrite

Not tested as i do not have access to a ftps server...

Try to adapt it to your needs  :)

Hello

Is there any example for Upload a file via FTPS with libcurl.au3

Share this post

Hi @anh7codon, I share this function from one of my scripts, this piece of code uploads on a secure FTP site some files.PDF.

I worked starting from this post, and  in short you have to use the SFTPEx.au3 UDF and keep in the same folder with your script this executable: psftp.exe (read the post I linked...)

My code for upload:

#include <SFTPEx.au3>

Func loadcorrections() ; carico i pdf invoice da correggere
    GOLLOG("checking corrections 2 send...")
    Local $corrarray = _FileListToArrayRec($folderPDF2correct, "fatt-*-*-*.pdf", 1, 0, 1, 0)
    If @error Then
        If @extended = 9 Then
            GOLLOG("no corrections 2 send !")
        Else
            $ctrlftpesito1 = "error checking corrections: " & @extended
            ExitwithError()
        EndIf
        Return
    EndIf

    ;_ArrayDisplay($corrarray) ; DEBUG
    ;ftp connessione
    Local $Open
    Local $conta = 0
    $Open = _SFTP_Open($psftp) ; inoltre apro e chiudo sFTP per ogni singola cartella
    $Conn = _SFTP_Connect($Open, $ftpserver, $ftpuser, $ftppass) ; SFTP 
    If $Conn = 0 Then
        $ctrlftpesito1 = "ftp_connect ERROR"
        ExitwithError()
    Else
        $ctrlftpesito1 = "ftp_connect OK"
        GOLLOG($ctrlftpesito1)
    EndIf
    ; imposto cartella di Upload

    If StringInStr(_SFTP_DirSetCurrent($Conn, $folderFTPcorrezioni), $folderFTPcorrezioni) <> 0 Then ;posiziono a directory ftp
        GOLLOG("dirSetCurrent OK")
    Else
        $ctrlftpesito1 = "error in ftp_dirsetcurrent " & @error
        ExitwithError()
    EndIf

    Do
        $conta += 1 ;contatore files
        If _SFTP_Fileput($Conn, $folderPDF2correct & "\" & $corrarray[$conta]) Then
            GOLLOG("UPLOADED " & $corrarray[$conta])
        Else
            $ctrlftpesito1 = "error" & @error & " uploading " & $corrarray[$conta]
            ExitwithError()
        EndIf

        If Not FileMove($folderPDF2correct & "\" & $corrarray[$conta], $folderPDFcorrectsent & "\" & $corrarray[$conta], 1) Then

            $ctrlftpesito1 = "error" & @error & " moving uploaded corrected file: " & $corrarray[$conta]
            ExitwithError()


        EndIf

    Until $conta = $corrarray[0]
    _SFTP_Close($Conn)

    Local $textcorr = $conta & " Corrected Invoices uploaded and stored "

    GOLLOG($textcorr)
    $textcorr = $textcorr & _ArrayToString($corrarray, "|", 1)
    mail("mail@themail.it", " -info- fatture corrette", $textcorr, "")

EndFunc   ;==>loadcorrections

In this func I search for a bunch of PDF files, I put the names in an array and I upload every file.

Bye

      Hello,
      This is my first post. So I’ve worked on a script for a while and I’m planning to publish it but the problem is that it connects to an FTP server at some point, and as you probably know FTP credentials are easily captured by a MITM attack or Wireshark (not sure if Wireshark does). So I thought if i can detect data capturing in the user’s network the script would stop. Any idea?.
      If there’s another workaround I’m happy to hear it.

      Hello,
      I am attempting to pull a list of the directory structure from a public FTP where no username or password is required i.e:
      ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/
      Now I have looked all over the place and have failed find anything to accomplish, and if I found some, and the documentation is rather bleak for example;
      it does show something I am looking for, but there is no ftp.au3, and the usage and examples of what i want to do seems to elude me on this and it may not even apply to what I am trying to accomplish?
      I want to avoid using things with Internet explorer , and I have done some google searches. However nothing seems to help
      the documentation surrounding : _FTP_DirGetCurrent  references _FTP_Connect , and then references _FTP_Open , and regardless what I try I cannot get it to pull a list of directorys of files as a list.
       
      Any help is appreciated

      Hi,
      Ones(some times twice) a month I get an e-mail with zip file, which has price updates from a supplier.
      I have to upload the file to an FTP to get it processed.
      When uploading the file, it will get "timestamped" with the time and date at which time the file was uploaded.
      Normally this is fine, because I mostly upload the file the same day.
      Sometimes it may take 1 or 2 days before I can upload the file.
      For historical purpose, I would like to have the file timestamped with the original date.
      I have tried using:  _FTP_Command ( $hFTPSession, "MFCT YYYYMMDDHHMMSS path") 
      however this command does not work or change the timestamp as I expected.
      Does anyone now a way how I can change the timestamp of a FTP-file?

      Hello,
      i need help in deleting files from a server. The function "_FTP_DirDelete" only deletes a directory when its empty. I need to delete a non empty directory. I also can not delete the files in this directory first, because the files are PAG and DIR files in a .DAV directory and FTPEx.au3 doesnt like a directory starting with a ".".
      Any ideas?
      Thx, Sally

      Hello,
      at job we have change our old mail servers with Outlook365. We have a lot of scripts that use mail, and i must 'convert' all them to new environment.
      No problem for sending mail. Microsoft staff give us also an open SMPT server listening on port 25.
      I need help to download mail from MS. I have big troubles because can't bypass SSL/TLS wall, using command line.
      Before change, I use a wonderful Command line Pop client.  But it doesn't have SSL support.
      I don't want to reinvent the well but exist, in Autoit, the way to code a POP3 client with SSL/TLS support ?
      (maybe not using OUTLOOK udf, can't install office on our server [ I don't have so many licenses ] )
      Thank you for your time
