I am working on an EDI 856 ASN project.--
We're currently in pilot phase (delivering product to a few, selected
customers requiring ASN) and this weekend had a problem where the
service handing ASN document transfers to our customers started
"Cannot connect to host 000.000.00.00 at address."
"Try again later."
(double quotes mine)
The ftp script in question has been running reliably the past few
weeks and had run successfully about 7:30 pm yesterday, Sunday, Jan
At about 10:15 pm, we started "receiving" the cannot connect message.
Our ASN document service is also looking into the issue, but they
don't yet see a cause for failed FTP connections.
Question: is there a fairly eash way to "catch" an FTP "Cannot
connect" message and then either continue the transfer or
My operations manager said he had recommended the purchase of a
"Managed FTP solution" but was turned- down due to cost.
