I use Apache's FTPClient and FTPServer libraries in my Java project. Server and client are on the same machine.
My FTPServer is supposed to be a local server,nothing related to the Internet. I can connect to the FTPServer from the client(I get 230 as reply code) but i cant seem to do anything. I cant store or retrieve any files.
I read almost every question related to this matter but people who asked other questions were be able to send simple files and had trouble with sending files like pdf etc. I just need to send or retrieve text files.
FTPClient client = new FTPClient(); String host = "mypc"; String Name = "user"; String Pass = "12345"; client.connect(host); client.login(Name,Pass); System.out.println("Reply Code: " +client.getReplyCode()); File file = new File("C:\\.....myfile..txt"); FileInputStream in = new FileInputStream("C:\\.....myfile..txt"); boolean isStored = client.storeFile("uploadedfile.txt", in); in.close(); client.logout(); System.out.println("isStored: " +isStored);
I didnt put the real path names. It returns false,no exceptions etc. This might be because of they're on the same machine?
Edit: Turned out i needed write permission to send a file to ftpserver. By default, it doesnt give users write permission. How can i give users write permission using Apache's ftpserver library?
