I got it to work.  It would not let me do a : so what I did was specify a
.txt file to direct out put to and this seemed to allow the script to
realize the ' 20' was still part of the ip address.

   open 192.168.0.245 20>ftpout.txt


 Now onto phase II changing the IP to an external ip address and trying this
from home.  Hopefully its will be "smooth" ;-) no more problems!!

Angela, the space is a problem.  Will the syntax 123.456.789:20 work
successfully?  Use a colon as the delimiter?

Subject: RE: FTP to a port number on a computer

I have tried both methods as far as entering in the user and password. I
have many .bat files that do ftp and many ftp input files that contain
script to do it with db2 files. My problem seems to be becuase of the
port#. I can do it all manually from a DOS command now, I have the correct
syntax for the port#. However when I put it in script i get invalid user.
I am not sure on the examples on FAQ and even from other users on the list
you put the word 'user' before the user and password. This did nothing put
cause more errors as it thought i was trying to logon as 'user' and was then
sending 2 parms.

Running manually from a DOS command:
