FTP error from Linux to Windows.

I get following error from my new ftp script:

ftp: setsockopt (ignored): Permission denied
ftp: setsockopt (ignored): Permission denied
ftp: bind: Address already in use

Now FTP is not working and I get that same message everytime I run the ftp script.

Thanks,

Gulam.

What's in your new FTP script? Or should we

It still works for me. Perhaps it would help
if you said exactly what you did and exactly
what happened when you did it. Of should we
be able to read your mind as well as your
files?

Why would you expect it to do _different_
things every time?

Re: FTP error from Linux to Windows.

I remember I got this message:

"setsockopt (ignored): Permission denied"

Once when a command needed the SUID permissions. I don't know what your ftp script is trying to do, but it looks like is trying to open a port that is already open, that is why you get:

ftp: bind: Address already in use


Can you give more details about your new ftp script? What kind of script, shell script, perl script? maybe you can share the code.
