FTP Download - Wildcard

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

Hi,

I'm looking to create a script which will download all *.txt files from a remote FTP server.

Once downloaded, delete all *.txt files.

 

Can this be achieved using AutoIt ?

You can do that with AutoIT, but you will need to study basic FTP commands(mget) and maybe a few more things.
Also you could try using autoit with filezilla and that maybe make things easier for you.

      I have used this code for a long time, but for a week or 2 it stopped working?
      Connection is ok, the put create the file on server if I delete it on the FTP server, but the file is empty and after 30 secondees the function return 0
      I have tested on 2 machines, Filezilla FTP client have no issue to the server.
      Firewall is disabled under test.
        If $writeFTP = True Then
            $Open=_FTPOpen('MyFTP Control')
            $Conn=_FTPConnect($Open, $destinationServer, $destinationUsername, $destinationPass)
       MsgBox(0,"start","start")
            $Ftpp=_FtpPutFile($Conn, $filePath&$name&".json", "httpdocs/p_calender/" & $name & ".json")
      MsgBox(0,"return","return"&$Ftpp)
      Exit
            $Ftpc=_FTPClose($Open)
           EndIf
       
      From the Lib:
      Func _FTPPutFile($l_FTPSession, $s_LocalFile, $s_RemoteFile, $l_Flags = 0, $l_Context = 0)
          Local $ai_FTPPutFile = DllCall('wininet.dll', 'int', 'FtpPutFile', 'long', $l_FTPSession, 'str', $s_LocalFile, 'str', $s_RemoteFile, 'long', $l_Flags, 'long', $l_Context)
          If @error OR $ai_FTPPutFile[0] = 0 Then
              SetError(-1)
              Return 0
          EndIf
          Return $ai_FTPPutFile[0]
      EndFunc ;==> _FTPPutFile()

      As for now I was using such kind of snippet:
      Local $aFTP_FileList = _FTP_ListToArray($hFTPSession, 2) For $iFTPFileSize_idx = 1 To $aFTP_FileList[0] ConsoleWrite('Pobieram informacje o pliku:' & $aFTP_FileList[$iFTPFileSize_idx] ) $iWielkoscPliku = _FTP_FileGetSize($hFTPSession, $aFTP_FileList[$iFTPFileSize_idx]) ConsoleWrite($iFTPFileSize_idx & ' : ' & $aFTP_FileList[$iFTPFileSize_idx] & ' rozmiar=' & $iWielkoscPliku) Sleep(200) Next  
      But from some time my clients start buying cheap WD MyCloud NAS, and my problems starts.
      On all others NAS there is no problem (Seagate BlackArmour, QNAP, SYNOLOGY .... ).

      When on list there is for example 20 files then first two of them are very fast checked and reported they FileSize.
      After 2 files there is about 20 sec stop....... and next two files are checked with no errors but FileSize == 0 
      again there is about 20 sec stop....... and next two files are checked with no errors but FileSize == 0 
      again there is about 20 sec stop....... and next two files are checked with no errors but FileSize == 0 
      again there is about 20 sec stop....... and next two files are checked with no errors but FileSize == 0 
      again there is about 20 sec stop....... and next two files are checked with no errors but FileSize == 0 
      .......
       
      In time when I process investigation I checked how :  _FTP_ListToArray2D and _FTP_ListToArrayEx works and I was shocked that they works super fast.
       
      Here are the questions:
      Q1: Why does the problem occur only on WD MyCloud NAS?
      Q2: What is the significant difference that makes using _FTP_ListToArray2D and _FTP_ListToArrayEx to retrieve file sizes is still fast?
      Q3: Why _FTP_FileGetSize() not reporting @errors but returned FileSize = 0

      In documentation for:
       
      #include <FTPEx.au3> _FTP_Connect ( $hInternetSession, $sServerName, $sUsername, $sPassword [, $iPassive = 0 [, $iServerPort = 0 [, $iService = $INTERNET_SERVICE_FTP [, $iFlags = 0 [, $fuContext = 0]]]]] ) There are two parameters for Passive:
       
      My question is: 

      What is a difference beetwen  using :
      $iPassive = 1
      and
      $iFlags =     $INTERNET_FLAG_PASSIVE

      Here a small tool I wrote to update my Sysinternal tools collection without the need to download always the whole package or visiting the site to check for updates. I know that there are several tools available (also some tools written in AutoIt) but here another one for the collection. It was good exercise for me to code it.
       
       
        
       
       
      Some files from cannot be downloaded although they are visible on the web site!
       
      Here the download link of the source code only: AutoIt Sysinternal Tools Synchronizer v0.99.1 build 2017-10-23 beta.7z  (1353 downloads previously)
      -=> Requires AutoIt version 3.3.13.20 or higher / tested on Win8.1 real machine and some VMs: Win7 / Vista / Win10
       
      Compiled exe only: @MediaFire
       
      Just select the Sysinternal Tools folder or create one and press the synchronize button to download the selected items. Click on AutoIt label (near to left upper corner) to open menu.
       
      Special thanks to LarsJ, Melba23 and mesale0077 for their help. 
       
      I've still some ideas to implement which are more gimmick related, so it is not finished yet...
      If you want to add your language please check out #Region Language. Thanks. 
       
      Please report any bug or if you have any suggestions.
       
      The language of the tool tip from each of the executable in the left list view were automatically created using Google translator and weren't checked for correctness.

      So I was playing with INet and downloading files and made a simple video downloader, or it can even be used for any file really.
      Just follow the reference section in INet_Settings.ini , and then run the script.
       
      Main Script #include <INet.au3> #include <InetConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <String.au3> OnAutoItExitRegister('INET_CLOSE') $GET_URL = _INetGetSource(IniRead(@ScriptDir & '\Inet_Settings.ini', 'Request', 'Url', Default)) $STRING_START = IniRead(@ScriptDir & '\Inet_Settings.ini', 'Data', 'Start', Default) $STRING_END = IniRead(@ScriptDir & '\Inet_Settings.ini', 'Data', 'End', Default) $GET_STRING = _StringBetween ($GET_URL, $STRING_START, $STRING_END) $VIDEO_URL = _ArrayToString($GET_STRING) $VIDEO = _URIDecode($VIDEO_URL) If StringLen($VIDEO) > 0 Then Local $VIDEO_DIR = (@ScriptDir & '\' & Random(1, 65535) & '.mp4') Local $DOWNLOAD_VIDEO = InetGet($VIDEO, $VIDEO_DIR, $INET_FORCERELOAD, $INET_DOWNLOADBACKGROUND) Do Sleep(IniRead(@ScriptDir & '\Inet_Settings.ini', 'Settings', 'Delay', Default)) Until InetGetInfo($DOWNLOAD_VIDEO, $INET_DOWNLOADCOMPLETE) InetClose($DOWNLOAD_VIDEO) Else MsgBox(0, 'DEBUG', "Video doesn't exist") EndIf Func INET_CLOSE() InetClose($DOWNLOAD_VIDEO) EndFunc Func _URIEncode($sData) ; Prog@ndy Local $aData = StringSplit(BinaryToString(StringToBinary($sData,4),1),"") Local $nChar $sData="" For $i = 1 To $aData[0] ; ConsoleWrite($aData[$i] & @CRLF) $nChar = Asc($aData[$i]) Switch $nChar Case 45, 46, 48 To 57, 65 To 90, 95, 97 To 122, 126 $sData &= $aData[$i] Case 32 $sData &= "+" Case Else $sData &= "%" & Hex($nChar,2) EndSwitch Next Return $sData EndFunc Func _URIDecode($sData) ; Prog@ndy Local $aData = StringSplit(StringReplace($sData,"+"," ",0,1),"%") $sData = "" For $i = 2 To $aData[0] $aData[1] &= Chr(Dec(StringLeft($aData[$i],2))) & StringTrimLeft($aData[$i],2) Next Return BinaryToString(StringToBinary($aData[1],1),4) EndFunc
