FTP Client
« on: March 23, 2020, 07:44:51 AM »
Hello
and thank you for any tips.
I've searched but can't find much relevant information.
TC 11.0 doesn't have an FTP client.
I guess the question is Why Not and Why can't it be installed?

Some tips suggest using cftp - which can't be found using tce-load.
Lftp says its a "sophisticated" ftp, but it DOESN'T work.
Gftp and filezilla are graphical and more than I need.
A simple command line would be the easiest.

On Linux Mint, I can type FTP, open, type the IP address and connect to a printer.

lftp:~> - type open ip address, it will show lftp x.x.x.x:~> with or without a network cable attached, and doesn't connect to anything.

Sorry if I'm missing something.
Cheers, and stay safe out there.

Hi techsuper
Busybox includes  ftpget:
Code: [Select]
tc@E310:~/info$ ftpget --help
BusyBox v1.29.3 (2018-12-19 15:29:37 UTC) multi-call binary.

Usage: ftpget [OPTIONS] HOST [LOCAL_FILE] REMOTE_FILE

Download a file via FTP

        -c      Continue previous transfer
        -v      Verbose
        -u USER Username
        -p PASS Password
        -P NUM  Port
tc@E310:~/info$

To see what else is included in  busybox, just enter  busybox  at the command line. For privileged commands,  busybox.suid.

Hey Thanks Rich.
After 3 weeks of searching, something so simple. Worked like a charm.
Now on to the next challenge.
