FTP Passive (PASV) File Transfers?

» close window

The Question is:

How can I use pasv in ucx ftp?
Please send me a script that uses passive mode to transfer a file.

The Answer is :

  At the FTP utility command prompt, details and examples of passive
  mode operations (RFC 959) can be obtained with the help text for
  SET PASSIVE.  (Those with specific requirements for the server can
  avail themselves of the QUOTE PASV mechanism, though this is not
  normally recommended.)
  The OpenVMS DCL interface to FTP (COPY/FTP) is being updated to
  support a /PASSIVE switch, as well.
  The OpenVMS Wizard would recommend TCP/IP Services V5.1 or later,
  with current ECO.
