One really big benefit of Scott's FTPAPI is, each FTP command is a
separate call to a procedure - therefore, you can perform error-checking
in a very granular fashion.
In the script approach, you have to wait until it's all done and parse
the resulting output file, usually a spooled file.

get rid of the script and use Scott's FTPAPI...
But download the beta version as it is the most recent (I'd take Scott's beta code over most vendor's production code, beside the only reason it's still "beta" is that he want to update the examples) http://www.scottklement.com/ftpapi/beta/

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
