They've told me to try this:

!REM

which I will do when I come up for air.

Certain FTP servers will check for each command. For example I am using
GoAnywhere for our external FTP serving. I would have to authorize one to
that command. I didn't check if it has that level of granularity. I did
try it with FileZilla and got
Error: Command not supported by this protocol

So it's not out of the realm of possibility for noop to not work.

They tested a NOOP on their end and it did not work.

They're going to let me know what does work.

Jeff,

That seems the most reasonable thing to try. I will first ask them
before
I just "stick one in there".


That sounds like you have a specific FTP site that you want to document
in
your scripts first. So just manually log into their site following the
sequence of your script, but somewhere after the login issue a NOOP
command
followed by whatever text you want. As long as you get back a 200 OK
response (or similar 2xx message) you should be fine with that server.

I really think it SHOULD work with all servers. But I can't guarantee
it.
