change the default directory on the ftp server using g4u

hi

I try to clone a linux server using g4u from:

http://www.feyrer.de/g4u/

I cannot find howto change the default directory on the remote ftp server.

I've tried:

uploaddisk admin@192.168.0.5/Public

but it doesn't work.

Re: change the default directory on the ftp server using g4u

I haven't tried g4u, but according to the website, I understood the syntax is:

uploaddisk <[account@]your.ftp.server.com> [disk_device]

It would seem that your uploaddisk command has two problems:

1.) The destination filename is missing, so the command won't know which file to write. The documentation does not say anything about a default filename, so there probably isn't one.

2.) The first parameter is supposed to include the server name/address and optionally the account username: since "uploaddisk" is a script, it probably isn't parsed like an URL.

Try a command line like this instead:

uploaddisk admin@192.168.0.5 Public/linuximage.gz
