Hi,
I want to ftp a file to a location and then kickstart a process there to work on the file. I tried using !rexec but it does not seem to be working too well. I am not using the .netrc file(if that helps you understand my problems better)
Thanks in advance

Hello voidyman!

I'm not sure about kicking off a process via FTP, but if you have cron access you might get better results running a shell script from cron that checks for that file, and does the work if it exists.

Hi Gromit!!
Yeah, Figured FTP is not built for that. Thanks :)
