Hello Rick,

I am a big time user of West Wind Internet tools.
especially the SMTP emailing tools. Really works great!

Now I am attempting to use the FTP function for a new product I have developed scoring baseball games. I need to find a way to automate the upload and download of DBF files (or ZIP files) from within my VFP apps. But not able to get the FTP function to work from wwClientTools 6.0. See error message ....

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Mike

Can't read error message and please provide more info than just 'it doesn't work'.

Path is incorrect. You need to use forward slashes for FTP paths or - in this case since it's the root path - most likely no path for the file.
