Hi Jan

Thanks for your persistence!  I am using the latest Download of RunRev (version 1.1.1). A text transfer works perfectly. I have
pasted a typical log field below, and nothing looks particularly wrong, unless I'm missing something (I hope I am!). I have also
played around with active/passive modes, but both yield the same result. The transfer succeeds, but the resulting file on the
server is 0 bytes long. I am using the Starter Kit version of Revolution, but should this make a difference?

-220 Serv-U FTP-Server v2.5k for WinSock ready...
-331 User name okay, need password.
-230 User logged in, proceed.
-257 "/poolcreative" is current directory.
-200 Type set to I.
-200 PORT Command successful.
-150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for testfile.gif.
-226-Maximum disk quota limited to 50000 Kbytes
-    Used disk quota 25862 Kbytes, available 24137 Kbytes
-226 Transfer complete.

Hi Brendan,

Have you tested if it works with the data from a field
-- so just plain text data?
Are you using the latest LibURL package? It's
available on the RunRev website.

One other thing you could do is check the error log
and see if it gives you any clues:
- on the same card as the scipt you're using to
upload, create a scrolling field "FTP_log"
- just before you send anything upstream, insert the
following line in your script:
  libUrlSetLogField the long name of field "FTP_log"

This will show you the results of the commands as you
would have seen them if you had gone to the command
console and typed "ftp example.net", etc.

I'm sure we can get your script on track once we
figure out where exactly it's going wrong.

Jan Schenkel.
