FTP Upload fails...

Post by maddinthebrain » Thu 07 Sep 2017 6:06 pm

Hello folks,

I'm trying to setup sftp upload to the ftp-server of my webspace (of one.com).Unfortunately there are errors:

from ftplog.txt

Code: Select all

2017-09-07 18:05:04.129 Connecting to ssh.myftpserver.de
SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_6.6.1p1 Debian-4~bpo70+1
Disposing FtpClient object...
Disposing FtpSocketStream...
Testing connectivity using Socket.Poll()...
2017-09-07 18:05:26.074 Uploading realtime.txt to Cumulus/realtime.txt
Testing connectivity using Socket.Poll()...
502 'TYPE': command not implemented. 
The thing with TYPE is for every file Cumulus tries to upload.

How can I solve it? Is there an external ftp-client which can I use on raspbian?

As SSH is also possible for this, how to setup a cron job or similar?

Thanks in advance.

You could try asking your hosting provider why their ftp server doesn't support the TYPE command. That seems like quite a basic omission (although admittedly it's probably not an essential function).
