For the past couple of days I've been unable to make usable
connections to Sunsite via TERM-NcFTP version 1.7.0. It connects and
displays the logon message (the one mentioning FTPTool); I can also
change directories without trouble. However, any attempt to list the
contents of a directory or grab a file with mget (which requires
pattern-matching against the directory) fails. No error is indicated,
it just redisplays the prompt after doing nothing. Doing a "get" as
opposed to an "mget" does work.
I can connect from normal TCP/IP hosts and get directory listings,
even using the same version of NcFTP but without TERM support. Also,
Sunsite is the only FTP archive that seems to be having this problem!
All the others are still OK. Switching TERM hosts doesn't help.
I know Sunsite has had some recent downtime; could they have changed
over to a new ftp server program and thereby caused this problem?
Anyone else even having a problem w/sunsite?
