Hi,
I am trying to FTP a text file from a AIX box to a UNIX box using JAVA. I already have a code which can FTP files into a Windows environment. I am using the same code to log into the Solaris box. I am able to log into the system by using the doCommand() method (see code below) but the same code isn't working in the ftp session. I am getting "Get option: single" as a response when I execute any command after logging in. But the same doCommand() method after logging in works fine on a windows box.

The method that is trying to execute the commands on the UNIX server is as follows:

public String doCommand(String commandString)
throws IOException
{
outStream.writeBytes(commandString+"\r\n");
String response = getResponse();
System.out.println("The response from the Mailbox server is : " + response);
return response;
}

Any suggestions on this is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Ravi Pydi

There are Java packages out there in that can send and receive files from FTP servers without you having to reinvent the entire FTP protocol.

Try Google.
