FTP - "The parameter is incorrect."

FTP - "The parameter is incorrect."

Post by Swati Pate » Sun, 27 Aug 2000 11:38:23



Does anybody know what could be causing FTP to print the message "The
parameter is incorrect." when I try to transfer a file.
The error message comes up when I type "put file".  
Here is exactly what comes up:
"ams_write_file.Thu24Aug2000_15:46:34.txt: The parameter is incorrect."
Could this have something to do with the name of the file, because when
I try with a file named "new" it works fine.  The name of the file is
"ams_write_file.Thu24Aug2000_15:46:34.txt".
I have transferred this file to another machine & works fine also.
Man page for ftp doesn't help.
Thanks for any help.

At a guess, I'd say it's the colons.  They're the only really funky
characters you've got in there.  Another possibility is that the
name is too large.  What are you trying to transfer it to?

You're right - it was the colons - trying to transfer to NT - when I
removed the colons it worked fine..
Thanks.
