view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, This is what I did: Code: ftp> ls > filelist.txt ftp> output to local-file: filelist.txt? y 200 PORT command successful 150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list 450 >: No such file or directory ftp> (emphasis mine to highlight user input) This creates a local file filelist.txt but its empty. Thanks for reading. I'd appreciate any help with this. (Hardware)
