ftp error 550

May 16, 2006 at 15:56:18
Specs: open vms 7.3-2, alpha 1200 512 ram
I am trying to "get" a file using ftp from a clients site. I enter the site enter my username and password and then need to enter passive mode. So far so good. I can put files but I need to rename them as client wants files named - rich.dog.cat.txt (example) the open vms operating system will not let you put multiple . in the file name - so when I upload I rename the file. However on download i get the


425 Can't open passive connection in port range: Error 0.

any thoughts on how to grab and rename the file?

I would have to take a look at the details of the situation, but as a start, check if your particular FTP (you did not mention which version of what product you are using) will accept a filename string encased in double quotes.
