226-Scan result: Skip scanning large file

Hi,
I use FTP to get the files from a remote node. I get this error:

ftp> get /backup/oracle_backup.dmp /oracle/backup/

200 PORT command successful.

150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for /backup/oracle_backup.dmp (327237632

bytes).

226-Scan result:
Skip scanning large file /backup/oracle_backup.dmp



226 Transfer complete.

Please help me to solve the problem with skipping the file scan from FTP.

Thank you

Hi,

>>>
ftp> get /backup/oracle_backup.dmp /oracle/backup/
<<<

What is this /oracle/backup? Is it destination directory where you want to put the ftp file? I don't think you can specify destination directory in get command. You should use lcd command for that purpose like this.

ftp>lcd /oracle/backup
ftp>get /backup/oracle_backup.dmp
Best wishes,

Not a particularly complete or useful
description of the remote system.

Why do you call this a "problem"? An FTP
status code "2xx" implies success.

Knowing nothing about the "remote node", I'd
guess that its FTP server runs some kind of
anti-virus scan on files which it serves.
The message implies that it doesn't do it for
large files (like, say, an Oracle data base
backup file). Do you care?

Did you get the file or not?

Hi all,
Thank you all for your replies.
Actually I added lcd and it works:

ftp> lcd /backup
Local directory now /oracle/backup

ftp> get /backup/oracle_backup.dmp
200 PORT command successful.
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for /backup/oracle_backup.dmp (32723763
bytes).
226-Scan result:
Skip scanning large file /backup/oracle_backup.dmp

226 Transfer complete.

ftp> bye
221-You have transferred 327237632 bytes in 1 files.

221-Thank you for using the FTP service on dbsrv2.
221 Goodbye.

-rw-rw-rw- 1 root sys 3852259 May 11 03:55 test

In my previous case the file was not copied, as I did wrongly specified the destination on GET command.
But still it shows:
226-Scan result:
Skip scanning large file /backup/oracle_backup.dmp

Maybe this is comming from an antivirus software, I am not aware of.

Thank you for supporting.
