FTP Transfer Verification?

» close window

The Question is:

How do I display FTP transfer progress when running FTP in a command procedure
 at the terminal?
When the commands are typed at the terminal, transfer progress is indicated on
 the screen with # hash signs. If the commands are placed in a command
 procedure, the hash signs are not displayed when the command procedure is

The Answer is :

  There is no particular means to trace the progress of FTP activity,
  though the Compaq FTSO package may be of interest -- FTSO provides
  for FTP transfers that can be transparently restarted after a failed
  network connection is restored.
  Alternatively, please use COPY/FTP from DCL command procedures, and
  please use the current TCP/IP Services release and associated ECO.
  Also please see topic (7684).
