Build FTP Parameters for FTP

Postby hjyoungii » Thu Apr 09, 2009 9:05 pm

We currently have the following commands being built thru REXX for FTPing files. However, we also need to be able to include the user name and password:

 NEWSTACK                               
 QUEUE ' PWD'                           
 QUEUE ' ASCII'                         
 QUEUE ' SENDSITE'                       
 QUEUE ' CD '||PATH                     
 DO I = 1 TO NUMBER_OF_LINES             
   COUNT = COUNT + 1                     
   PARSE VAR FILELINE.COUNT X1 X2       
   QUEUE ' PUT '||X1                     
 END                                     
 QUEUE ' QUIT'                           
 RETURN

Hello,

I'm probably missing something, but why not QUEUE those as well?
Hope this helps,

I agree. However, I always prefer to use the NETRC dataset for a more secured storage of id's and passwords.

Hello,

Didn't know about NETRC (i don't have ndm) :oops:

I'm always a proponent of the more secure approach. . .
