ftp with open url?
Is it possible to download a file from ftp with Filemaker 13 new feature that allow http posts and ftp?
Insert URL Script Step should do that.
Or you try a plugin like MBS Plugin
I am familiar with the plugins but I wanted to know if it was possible with filemaker 13's new features.
"Insert From URL" script step does it. Try!
Thanks I have but I can't seem to get the syntax correct. I would really appreciate assistance.
Perhaps you should share the syntax that you are unsuccessfully trying to use so others can double check it for issues.
This is what I am trying to copy
The URL ftp://user001:email@example.comfirstname.lastname@example.org/mydirectory/myfile.txt
what tells the command that it is a download or upload of the file? I want to be able to download images.
it's always a download.
if the URL is right, it should simply work.
Of course if SSL settings are wrong, proxy is not used or authentication fails, the download will not happen.
Thanks for your response. I will keep trying, does fm13 support upload?
Also is there a way to download a folder? or get a list of items in the folder?
Im trying to gather if I must know the name of the file I need to download? like does it have to be hard coded?
you can use CURL functions in MBS Plugin to list folder content, download to a folder. with the built in command you can only download when you know exact URL. It can be a variable of course.
