Compare local and FTP directory

Post by dave_gordon » Wed Jun 12, 2013 3:09 am

I am presuming you can compare an entire directory but when I enter;

ftp//username@ezrvhire.com.au:password@ftp.ezrvhire.com.au/test

i get the error message;
File or directory
ftp//username@ezrvhire.com.au:password@ftp.ezrvhire.com.au/test
does not exists

Your URL is incorrect, it should be follow this pattern:

ftp://user:password@ftp.server.com

actually, it does follow that pattern, the username being
username@ezrvhire.com.au

But the ftp server might interprete the unmasked @ inside the username as the separator between login data and hostname.

It might be worth trying to replace the @ inside the username by %40, i.e.
ftp://username%40ezrvhire.com.au:passwo ... om.au/test

(no guarantee ...)

There was a missing colon after "ftp".
