Check FTP

Hi, We have a situation where the external Vendor wants us to test if a site is live and then transmit data. This needs to be done via FTP. We cannot use PING. Is there some sort of Check FTP connection command that is available so we can issue the command, check the return code and based on that, transmit the data as needed? Thanks in advance. SR

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can create a batch on the source system that
1- access the destination System via FTP
2- Transfer a file from destination to source system
3- Test the existence of this file on the source system.
4a- if the file exists, this means the site (destination) is active.
4b- if the file doesnt exist, most probabely the site is onactive.

Hope this clear and helps.
