FTP server and FFCore

Hi is it possible to save from Freeflow Core to a FTP location. Can this be done using the save node. I have tried using an FTP address as a file location in the save node but I get the error "pathname is invalid".

 

Is it possible to use an External Node using a script to send files from FFCore to an FTP folder.

 

Many thanks

Re: FTP server and FFCore

Unfortunately, the Save component cannot save to a save location. However, you can enable FTP upload by using a small script with the external component.

 

The trick is to build an FTP script on the flyso you can pass a variable with the path to the job file (aka $FFin$).

 

The following batch file should do the trick:

@echo off
echo user MyUserName> ftpcmd.dat
echo MyPassword>> ftpcmd.dat
echo bin>> ftpcmd.dat
echo put %1>> ftpcmd.dat
echo quit>> ftpcmd.dat
ftp -n -s:ftpcmd.dat SERVERNAME.COM
del ftpcmd.dat
