I'm writing a script to automatically up load a file from Server A to FTP server B. I'm getting stuck at the connecting part. I can connect with a python script using regular FTP, and have done so, but when trying to implement a SSL connection, I keep getting a timeout. I can't figure out why. Have searched here and stackoverflow. Any ideas welcomed!
I've verified the SSL setup on the receiving server by manually connecting using a Filezilla client
Here's my script:
from ftplib import FTP from ftplib import FTP_TLS ftps = FTP_TLS('xxx.xx.xxx.xx') ftps.auth() ftps.sendcmd('USER User') ftps.sendcmd('PASS Password') ftps.prot_p() ftps.retrlines('LIST') ftps.close()
And the result is:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "Script path and name removed for posting", line 12, in <module> ftps.retrlines('LIST') File "C:\Python33\lib\ftplib.py", line 767, in retrlines conn = self.transfercmd(cmd) File "C:\Python33\lib\ftplib.py", line 381, in transfercmd return self.ntransfercmd(cmd, rest) File "C:\Python33\lib\ftplib.py", line 742, in ntransfercmd conn, size = FTP.ntransfercmd(self, cmd, rest) File "C:\Python33\lib\ftplib.py", line 343, in ntransfercmd source_address=self.source_address) File "C:\Python33\lib\socket.py", line 424, in create_connection raise err File "C:\Python33\lib\socket.py", line 415, in create_connection sock.connect(sa) TimeoutError: [WinError 10060] A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond
What am I doing wrong, or not doing?
