550 failed to open file.. anyone help?


even though it says upload is done when i check the ftp_server dir there is no upload.txt
and get command is not working at all can anyone help??

the dir paths are :

and for files are :

did you got the solution???

yup i figured it out

how did you get it i am stuck here please tell

you need to check what is local current directory and which one is current directory

what is the need of checking the directory i am running this command in my ftp_server directory and it is showing this
ftp> get download.txt
local: download.txt remote: download.txt
200 PORT command successful. Consider using PASV.
550 Failed to open file.

what i meant to say is that you need to specify what is current directory and local current directory to start transfer between the directories

so do i have to put path along with the put and get command like "put filename.txt path(/workspace/ftp_server/) like this??

no you need to specify the current directory using cd command
and current working directory using lcd command

i cannot completely tell the answer i gave you a hint now just check about these commands!

can you just tell what basically we have to do like do we have to transfer actual file let say download.txt should be transfered from ftp_server directory to ftp_client directory is it the thing which we have to achieve??

after successful login to ftp
your first command will be cd ~/workspace/ftp_server

and you can check the get command now

Enjoy :slight_smile:
