Network file transfer

4 posts in this topic

Would like some suggestions for methods of transferring files over a network. Most file and dir copies are handled fine by AutoIt functions but we have one server that quite often gets reset to non-sharing (during builds, etc.) and no one remembers to set it back to sharing. I have remote login, eBlvd, and general web access to it at all times. One possibility might be doing a web fetch via php but that is another learning curve.

Thanks,

jh

Is FTP an option on that server?


[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]

I think if you search the forums I have seen a script posted that allowed you to check and set share staus. If not I'm reasonably certain that I have it in vbs so I could convert that to AutoIt.

You could then run that script against the servers before doing anything else.

Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.

Be sure to read and follow the forum rules. -AKA the AutoIt Reading and Comprehension Skills test.***

No, unfortunately.
