NT FTP Server access denial?

» close window

The Question is:

We are running OpenVMS 7.1 and have a batch job that runs copy/ftp to an NT
 server. This job has run for two years with no hitch, however we have just
 upgraded to TCPIP 5.0a and today, the copy/ftp job does not
 work...error=access denied. The full line is
 copy/ftp 'file_N' server"user password"::"/directory"
If I run the above manually with ftp, I have no problems. Also, if I do not
 specify a directory at the end, then no problem. The problem is with the
 directory point. The permissions are all correct on the NT side. Again, no
 problem with ftp and put. Any i
deas ??

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard is not familiar with any similar problem reports,
  please contact the Compaq Customer Support Center for assistance --
  access denials usually arise from the FTP server end; from the remote
  end of the FTP connection.  Further, if the FTP connection without
  the directory specification is functioning, then the OpenVMS end
  would appear to be operating correctly.
  You may/will need to enlist the assistance of an NT Wizard for this
  task, and for information on any logging that might be available or
  otherwise enabled within the NT FTP server.
  Use of OpenVMS Alpha V7.1-2 (or V7.2-1) is recommended over V7.1.
