CSS ftp script

Unanswered Question
Feb 9th, 2007


I use a CSS to load-balance ftp server. To validate the availability of my ftp servers, I would like to write a script that logs on each ftp server and then tries to get a copy of a small file on the server (the file are not stored locally on the ftp server, so I need this to validate that the server is able to retrieve the file from my storage).

Is it technically possible or not using scripts ? (the ftp script provided by Cisco only logs on the server)

If yes, has anyone already done this ? How can I do this ?



I have this problem too.

you could take the existing scripts and add more function to RETR a specific file.

However, downloading the file itself would be difficult and useless.

I would suggest to just send the RETR command and check the server response.
