working around a timeout

Recommended Posts

gcue

i have a script that checks the date on some files from a remote computer if it matches a date requested then it copies them to a temp file on the remote pc.. and then zips tehm up onto the pc running the script...

script works great if the remote pc is within the same location (or the connection is fast)

it seems its timing out for pcs that are on teh WAN, so the message box..."There were no log files dated" comes up.

any ideas how i can get around the timeout?

thanks

For $X = 1 to $fileList[0]
    
    $Date = FileGetTime($source & "\" & $fileList[$X], 0, 0)
    
    $fDate = StringFormat("%s/%s/%s", $Date[1],$Date[2],$Date[0])

    If $fDate = $date_request Then 
    $stats=GUICtrlCreateLabel("Copying Logs...", 10, 40)
    FileCopy($source & "\" & $fileList[$X], $destination, 1)
    EndIf
Next

If Not FileExists($destination & "\rolling*.*") Then
    MsgBox(0, "ETP Logs", "There were no log files dated " & $date_request & " on " & $asset)
    Return
EndIf

i tried it like this and it didnt work

(if the machine didnt respond to a ping they wont get this far)

For $X = 1 to $fileList[0]
    
    $Date = FileGetTime($source & "\" & $fileList[$X], 0, 0)
    
    $fDate = StringFormat("%s/%s/%s", $Date[1],$Date[2],$Date[0])

    If $fDate = $date_request Then 
    $stats=GUICtrlCreateLabel("Copying Logs...", 10, 40)
    Do
    $copy=FileCopy($source & "\" & $fileList[$X], $destination, 1)
    Until $copy > 0
    EndIf
Next
