Description Robert J. Osborne 2000-10-12 14:04:43 UTC
The ncftpput and ncftpget do not properly change directory remotely. 
Instead, they report that the directory on the FTP server does not exist.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-10-12 14:39:16 UTC

"ncftpget ftp://ftp.linux-easy.com/pub/linux-easy/i386/lilo-config-0.1.0-1.i386.rpm"

"ncftpget ftp.linux-easy.com . /pub/linux-easy/i386/lilo-config-0.1.0-1.i386.rpm"

work for me.

This may be a problem with a specific server you're trying to access; feel free to reopen this bug with a test case.

Comment 2 Mike Gleason 2000-10-19 03:56:47 UTC
There was a bug, when the remote directory to use was an absolute path and the 
remote home directory was not root (i.e. any non-anonymous user).  The problem 
was that NcFTP was stripping the first slash, and treating the rest of the path 
as a relative path.  For example:

    ncftpget -u joeuser /tmp /usr/bin/X11/xxgdb

This would fail with 3.0.1, because NcFTP would try to change to usr/bin/X11 
from the user's home directory.

NcFTP 3.0.2 will fix this problem.  (To be released October 19, 2000)
