Hi John,

Certain characters in usernames and passwords need to be URL encoded if you want to include them in a URL string.  The @ character is one of them.

Try something like his:

put urlencode("autoimage at jdoe.on-rev.com") into tUser 
put urlencode("xxxxx") into tPass
put the last image into URL ("ftp://"&tUser&":"&tPass&"@jdoe.on-rev.com/autoimage/images/newimage.jpg”)

Hi All,

I’m trying to ftp and image from the photo gallery on iOS to my on-rev account.  I’m using the example:
on mouseUp
mobilepickphoto “library"
--upload to FTP
put the last image into url ("ftp://autoimage@jdoe.on-rev.com:xxxxxxxxx@jdoe.on-rev.com/autoimage/images/newimage.jpg”)
--Informs of successful or unsuccessful upload
if the result is not empty then
answer "url put failed:" && the result
answer "success!”
end if
end mouseUp

It is throwing and an error, tsnetterr:(67) Access Denied: 530.

I can use Fetch (a mac FTP client) just fine with the same credentials and upload an image with no problem. I don’t even have to give Fetch the full ftp directory, just the host.

What am I missing?

Thank you!
