Programmatic ftp download

At the conclussion of a data logging process on the cFP 2120, I would like to programmatically download the data file to the host computer automatically using a LabView program running on the host computer.  Is there a way to do the FTP process programmatically with LabView?  Do I need to buy the Internet Toolkit?

You could run the system exec VI to execute a command line program.  This would be the ftp command.  Search for Windows help on ftp syntax.  It says you can give it a text file which would be a list of ftp commands.  That text file would be the script where you issue the change directory and get and put commands.  If you need more flexibility in the scripting, you could programmatically generate this text file before you run the ftp -s:filename.txt command.

  • FTP download speed issue

    Hi,
    This problem only started occurring from yesterday, but I'm getting very poor FTP download speeds.
    I use a dedicated server to store my work files then download at home but I'm finding it impossible now.
    Speeds no higher than 150kb/s even though I have 80mb unlimited.
    If I download any test files over HTTP I get full speed, its just an FTP issue (port 54630)
    I've rebooted router / reconnected etc... With no luck
    Can anyone help?
    Much appreciated

    Are you sure you are not getting confused with Mbps  (Megabits per second) and MBs (Megabytes per second)?
    Megabytes are Megabits divided by eight.
    So a download speed of 17Mbs equates to an actual data transfer rate of 2.125MBs (Megabytes), which is what you are getting.
    Download managers usually use megabytes and not megabits, so there is nothing wrong with your connection.

  • FTP download

    Hi experts,
    I have a scenario with two steps which are link by Predecessor/Sucessor.
    First step export an order of Sap B1 to a file in a FTP.
    Second step get back this file from FTP and create a Delivery Notes in Sap.
    I need to specify which file I want to get back. I don't know what I have to put in FilePattern of FTP Download.
    In the outbound message of my first step I haven't the name of the file that I have create.
    How can I do to get back the name of this file and to use it for the FilePattern of FTP download?
    Thank you
    Regards
    Sarah

    Hello Sarah,
    you can use the same upload pattern, to get a list of files, you'll receive a return like this:
      <ftp.filename>/in/COS???.csv</ftp.filename>
      <ftp.file>
      <FileList xmlns="" dir="/in/COS???.csv">
      <File name="COS001.csv" path="/" permission="-rw-rw-rw-" type="file" size="536" owner="user" group="group"/>
      <File name="COS002.csv" path="/" permission="-rw-rw-rw-" type="file" size="536" owner="user" group="group"/>
      </FileList>
      </ftp.file>
      </Payload>
    So you can select the last <File> node to catch the last file uploaded. Create another ftp inbound call atom to get the specific file. You can check the delete option to delete the file after download, if you don't want to store too many files. I hope this would be useful.
    Kind Regards,

  • Automating ftp download with powershell

    I need to setup a scheduled task that is going to download files from an ftp location (or just run it manually)
    I have the following for a ps1
    $File = "c:\store\somefilename.zip"
    $ftp = "ftp://username:[email protected]/pub/outbound/somefilename.zip"
    "ftp url: $ftp"
    $webclient = New-Object System.Net.WebClient
    $uri = New-Object System.Uri($ftp)
    "Downloading $File..."
    $webclient.DownloadFile($uri, $File)
    I'm guessing I can set $File to *.* but I don't want to download the same files everytime. I am hoping the users will be moving the files once downloaded but who can quarentee that. What for loop can I add to achieve this?
    I found the following but not sure how I would alter my original to add this in.
    foreach($listOut in $listIn)
    $a = ((Get-Date) - [datetime]::ParseExact($listOut.ModifiedDate, "MMM dd HH:mm", $null)).days
    if ($a -le 0)
    Get-FTPItem -path $dirBank\$($listOut.Name) -LocalPath d:\backup\test\$($listOut.Name)
    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Hi,I have written a PowerShell module which handles things like uploading/download of files to websites and ftp servers.
    The code is available at: https://github.com/kjacobsen/WebFunctions
    Import-Module E:\WebFunctions\Web-Actions.psm1
    Get-WebFile ftp://ftp.uni-rostock.de/pub/systems/windows/WinNT/Sys/SysInternals/Filemon.zip
    The code above will download the file to the current folder. The CMDlets support a variety of features including Proxy connections and authentication.

  • Could oracle provid https or ftp download?

    As we know,http download is unsafety,it's easy to redirected to another download place by  add a http 302 "Moved Temporarily" response code.So,could oracle java download site provide https download,just like chrome and firefox download site? Or provide a ftp download site?
                                Thanks,
                                                  John

    You currently have a proxy configuration set to Server:mpa.one.microsoft.com:443
    That's what's messing your connection, you can change this in Internet Explorer's Internet options, that change should reflect on Firefox.
    Try disabling the proxy, in this case, reading the 3rd-party tutorial at [http://www.ehow.com/how_2033232_change-proxy-settings.html external link]

  • Firefox will not download HTML downloads, only FTP downloads.

    I tried to download Eclipse Juno on their website today, but when I click the downloads, it goes to the thanks for download page and it does not load the download mirror (no dialog about opening or saving file).
    However, when I try and FTP download, it gives me the dialog and downloads correctly. Why is this happening?
    http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/eclipse/downloads/drops4/R-4.2.2-201302041200/eclipse-SDK-4.2.2-win32-x86_64.zip&mirror_id=546

    Can download. (FTP)

    Make sure that your security software isn't blocking the file.
    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
    *Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

    *https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Troubleshooting+extensions+and+themes
    Try to boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) as a test to see if that helps.
    It is possible that anti-virus software is corrupting downloaded files or is otherwise interfering with downloading files.<br />
    Try to disable the real-time (live) scanning of files in your anti-virus software temporarily to see if that makes downloading work.

  • FTP download from AS400-Help me!

    Hi all,
    I'm very frustrated!!!!.
    I'm trying to download a file from AS400 via FTP using org.apache.commons.net.FTPClient class, but as i download it by
    ftpClient.retrieveFile(remotePath,anOutputStream)
    i get a no ASCII file (opening file in local machine with word pad i see very bizarre characters!).
    If i download the same file by using ftp client at command line:
    ftp>login
    etc..........
    adding ftp>bin command and ftp>get fileName i get the good result.
    How could I replace ftp "bin" command by using org.apache.commons.net.FTPClient class ?
    Thanks in advance!!!
    Fil

    EBCDICShouldn't it be the same problem then when using
    command line ftp and "bin" transfer mode like hedid
    (successfully)?Probably but I still think it worth trying EBCDIC
    mode. If it does not help then one thing has been
    eliminated.Hi,
    ftpClient.setFileType(FTP.EBCDIC_FILE_TYPE)
    does't work (I tried).
    I tested that ftp>bin command works fine.
    Mistery!!!!!

  • Two Dimensional Report - With FTP download and formatting in EXCEL

    Hi all,
    I have a ztable with customer,daily quantity , date as columns. I need to make a report with date as rows and customer as columns . If a new customer is added in the ztable , one more column should come in the report.
    Basically the internal table should change <b>dynamically</b>.
    I have to download this report into FTP and should save as .xls file. All formatting that are there in SAP has to appear in the Excel Sheet also.
    Is there any function module for Dynamic Internal Tables and make <b>formatting changes in EXCEL</b> ??
    Thanks in Advance..
    Vivek Krishnan

    for dynamic columns, i am explaining u how to create with an exmaple, check it,
    suppose itab has fields A, B, C.
    SO ITAB-C HAS THE VALUES OF C. NOW WE WANT A TABLE WITH VALUES OF C RIGHT!!.
    NOW BUILD A FIELDCATALOG LIKE BELOW.
    LOOP AT ITAB.
    LS_FIELDCAT-FIELDNAME = ITAB-C.
    LS_FIELDCAT-COL_TEXT = ITAB_C.
    APPEND LS_FIELDCAT TO LT_FIELDCAT.
    ENDLOOP.
    DATA: DREF TYPE REF TO DATA.
    FIELD-SYMBOLS: <TEMP_TAB> TYPE ANY.
    CALL METHOD CL_ALV_TABLE_CREATE=>CREATE_DYNAMIC_TABLE
    EXPORTING
    IT_FIELDCATALOG = LT_LVCFIELDCAT
    IMPORTING
    EP_TABLE = DREF.
    ASSIGN dref->* TO <TEMP_TAB>.
    <TEMP_TAB> IS THE REQUIRED DYNAMIC INTERNAL TABLE.
    NOW IF U WANT TO FILL THE DYNAMIC INTERNAL TABLE.
    DO AS BELOW..
    DATA: WA_DREF TYPE REF TO DATA.
    FIELD-SYMBOLS: <WA_TAB> TYPE ANY.
    CREATE DATA WA_DREF LIKE LINE OF <TEMP_TAB>.
    ASSIGN WA_DREF->* TO <WA_TAB>.
    FIELD-SYMBOLS: <FS1>, <FS2>.
    LOOP AT ITAB.
    ASSIGN COMPONENT ITAB-C OF STRUCTURE <WA_TAB> TO <FS1>.
    <FS1> = {SOME VALUE}.
    APPEND <WA_TAB> TO <TEMP_TAB>.
    ENDLOOP.

  • FTP downloads with firewall on

    For what it's worth to other users --
    I had a problem downloading an update via FTP wth the Firewall turned on. I discovered the following note in the Firewall Preferences window:
    "To use FTP to retrieve files while the firewall is on, enable passive FTP mode using the Proxies tab in Network Preferences."

    The difference between the clients you use (Safari,Fetch,Transmit,Terminal,...) will be whether they are using PASSIVE mode by default. Not all of those clients use the flag that is set in Network Preferences.
    For reference on why you need PASSIVE mode when the firewall is on have a look at http://slacksite.com/other/ftp.html
    But the essence is that with the firewall turned on you have to tell the FTP server to be "passive" and let your client program create the connection. The firewall will generally be configured to allow the outgoing connection but to block an incoming connection request that happens if the server is communicating in "active" mode.

  • Rv180w blocking ftp download

    I have a RV180W router that is not allowing data to be transfered via FTP.  Using the command prompt I can Connect to the FTP server and find the files but will get stuck when trying to download the files. Does anyone have an answer for me? Cisco had fixed this issue with a simple setting before, but someone had thought it was a good idea to reset the router. I apparently didn't back up the settings or they are lost in a folder somewhere.
    could use the help,   Thanks

  • C# FTP Download Script Fails

    try
    //FtpWebRequest request = (FtpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(@"//ftp.london.com/gem/");
    //request.Proxy = null;
    FileStream outputStream = new FileStream(@"C:\Downloads\Files\" + FTPFile, FileMode.Create);

    This is a little hard to troubleshoot, but I determined that the code fails on this line:

    Everything works fine one several VMs, but when I just tried this exact same script on a new VM, it does NOT work.  I don't know if there is some setting that I need to check, or some kind of configuration, or what.  Again, this works on several
    of my VMs, and it's been working fine for over a year.  Just today it failed on a new VM, and I have no idea why.
    Here is the error message that I get.
    Any idea what's wrong, anyone?
    Knowledge is the only thing that I can give you, and still retain, and we are both better off for it.

    The user credentials you're using are not valid for the FTP server.  Verify the credentials and try again.

  • Is there the availability of a FTP download of the 4.7 Desktop Softare

    The WEB download load is so slow...... to download the 200K plus file (470_b050_english.exe) , like over 6 hrs at 9k/sec. FTP is faster if available.

    Nope, there is not.
    And I would not recommend downloading it from a rapidshare or third party link. You never know what you are getting.

  • FTP downloading using Java

    Hi,
    My program wants the capability to download a zipped file to a client machine for offline viewing. The zipping can be done using the util.zip package. But to place the file physically on to the client machine, can I use FTP?
    I know one of the options is to place the zip file somewhere in the web server and give a link from where the client can download it. But, is it possible to write the zip file physically to the client's machine?
    TIA
    manoj.

    You can use FTP to accomplish this. There are a set of classes (open source) available to do this. Check out the following site for download and API information.
    http://www.savarese.org/oro/index.html. This is the same package used by Jakarta Ant for the external FTP task.
