Doing:
Code:
copy /a: /e /f /g /md /s /u /w /[!src/* ] "ftp://prospero.unm.edu/*"                 c:\TCMD\MyPlugins\prospero.unm.edu\
and getting repeated time outs.......

I think this is Charles Dye's domain -
 
#3
I have many other apps that have an online status. Everything else works - sending large files too. It's just your domain that doesn't. I guess I can switch to another UserID and see if the same command gives the same timeouts....

Any other ideas?
 
#4
I switched to another Windows User acc't which loads a lot less software - even increased the Option > Internet tab > all timeouts changed from 180 to 600 - and still receiving timeouts. So I don't think it's anything on my end....

I just tested your command, verbatim, at home, on a rather pathetic netbook via 54Mb wireless. I still can't replicate your issue. (And honestly, if I could replicate it, I have no idea what I could do about it.)

Do you have PassiveFTP on? Is anybody else having trouble accessing Prospero?

Yes I have PassiveFTP checked but for some reason I can not change it.

With a simple "COPY /S" I got everything in the root directory but then some unexpected things happened. In particular, no files were found in the "tccle" and "tcmd" folders. And TCC couldn't get file sizes in "src". Maybe TCC has some problems.

So - any ideas what can be done to get this to work - or am I SOL.......

I too couldn't get the /src\ folder to work - and plus I didn't want the files anyway - so hence the exclude on the COPY...
 
#14
I don't know about the timeouts. With "COPY /S" I see a mixture of forward and back slashes in the URLs, and some operations seem to fail. When I do "DIR /S", the URLs have only forward slashes and all seems well. I think this is a TCC problem. With a sniffer, I can see the FTP requests with mixed slashes, and I can see that they fail.

Code:
Request:
E..8z.@.....JOTL
..&..z..M.....J.
P.@.E...CWD./tcm
d\v13\..

Response
E..I.D@./.....&.
JOTL...z..J.M...
P....U..550.Fail
ed.to.change.dir
ectory...
"DIR /S" on the other hand never sends backslashes in directory names, and succeeds.
 
#15
The backslashes only seem to cause a problem when they're between two directory names, and not on all servers. Compare the results below with Charles's prospero and my lucky.

Code:
dir /s "ftp://prospero.unm.edu\tcmd\v15\*" - doesn't work on prospero

dir /s "ftp://prospero.unm.edu\tcmd/v15\*" - works on prospero

dir /s "ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins\x64/* - works on lucky

dir /s "ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins/x64/* - works on lucky

Sorry. I still can't reproduce the issue, and I still don't know what I could do about it if I could reproduce it.

No, you can't ping computers from off campus. Or, very often, between subnets on the campus -- an occasional annoyance for me.

As far as I know, backslash is a perfectly legal filename character in Unix. Just a regular ASCII character, with no special meaning.
 
#18
Have you both tried the COPY command verbatium as I posted in the original message

https://jpsoft.com/forums/threads/timeout-on-ftp-prospero-unm-edu.6616/

Only thing is the local destination.....

===============

One thing seems weird - I can connect to ftp://prospero.unm.edu/ just fine using Internet Explorer .....

[C:\Program Files\JPSoft\TCMD17x64]echo %@verinfo["\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"]

Today, I'm getting timeouts with the same simple command that worked yesterday. And it's not working in FireFox either (yesterday it did).
Code:
v:\prospero> copy /s "ftp://prospero.unm.edu/*"
TCC: Timeout. "ftp://prospero.unm.edu/*"
TCC: Timeout. "ftp://prospero.unm.edu/*"
Here's a capture. At 15:42:45, prospero says "220" (ready), TCC sends the username, prospero sends "331" (need password). Then TCC keeps sending the password; there's not another response from prospero for at least 22 seconds.

I have modified the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file but that should not have anything to do with my TCC/TCMD concern, right? and I did a search for [.edu] was just "artinstitutes.edu" - nothing close to C.D.'s domain...

So then no remedy for my concern ?
I still can't reproduce it. But I do know that UNM IT has been having intermittent router issues during the past week, which I suppose could explain your difficulty. So my best advice at this point is, if you have problems accessing Prospero, wait and try again in an hour or two.

(I can reproduce Vince's /S issue, only in v17, not in v16. Looks like Rex is on top of that one.)

Any idea when UNM IT will have the connection issues resolved? Would you maybe post a message here when it's clear? I have tried 2x in tbe last 6 houjrs and still getting time outs.

As far as I know, it's all working as of Friday. Sorry; I still can't reproduce your issue (trying again, from off-campus, via wireless, on the slow netbook, with other programs running at the same time....) and have no idea how to work around it.
