I’m trying to download a file from a Linux server via FTP from Windows command line. I’ve successfully downloaded the file with FileZilla (same server, same file), but I want to do it in
I’ve tried two things:
$ ftp 10.58.83.2 ftp> cd /home Not connected. ftp> $ ftp ftp> open 10.58.83.2 ftp> cd /home Not connected. ftp>
Why am I not prompted to enter user creds?
== EDIT ==
I tried to specify the port
$ ftp ftp> open 10.58.83.2 22 Connected to 10.58.83.2. SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_4.3 <Waits for a minute or so> Connection closed by remote host. ftp>
After it says I’m connected it just waits a minute and then closes the connection. I have succeeded with FileZilla so it should be possible, right?
try using ftp command:
user your_ftp_user then password after enter(i use it that way with script file, password in new line), or
user your_ftp_user thats_user_password but I haven’t tried password in same line as user.
and to connect to specific port you might have to use ftp command
open address port as you did, it won’t work directly using
ftp address:port – didn’t work for me.
I had the EXACT same experience trying to ftp to an as400. Turns out the ftp job wasn’t running on the server. Just has to start it.
