First you have to make sure you have a FTP server listening on port 20. You cannot connect to just any port. You can configure virtual FTP sites with the same name as the user profile you logon with. This allows you to automatically put the FTP user into their own directory. Still uses the standard port of 21 for control and 20 for data transfer. Christopher K.

We have several companies and we would like them to all send there files to a specific folder. This process should be able to be automated. I created a bat program that would FTP to an IP ( the IP specified is internal, once I get that working I will try to use do this with the external IP from home.) The default port for TCP/IP is 21, I would like to go to port 20. Here is my bat pgm. open 192.168.0.245  user password put \\root\home\file.txt newfile.txt quit It gives me an error of invalid port number. If I remove the port number I can run this from DOS, put it puts my file to the default port. My .bat program will not run, it tells me invalid login. I can do the FTP from an HTML address line. Anyone know what I am doing wrong or another way to send a txt file to another sever ( with the idea that to some it will not be an internal server) Thanks!!!
