The ncftpput and ncftpget do not properly change directory remotely.
Instead, they report that the directory on the FTP server does not exist.
"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.
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 10.1.2.3 /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)
