I am wanting to write a droplet that I can drop a .mov file onto, and it will connect to a preset ftp server, goto the correct folder, and put that .mov file into that remote folder overwriting anything that may have the same name as it. HOW DO I DO IT???
Thank you for any help that you can offer,
I would like it to not be dependent on any other programs, just using the finder, if possible. I have figured out how to make it mount an ftp server like a harddrive, but I can’t make it go to it and open the correct folder…
Anyway, if anyone has insight, or a script that already does this, please let me know.
The Finder can mount and only READ ftp servers. It currently cannot delete or upload files on the server, no matter what password you used. I’d recommend using the command-line tool curl. URL Access Scripting may also work, but I’ve come to distrust it. One problem I have with URLAS is that the ability to POST forms has been broken for a year and a half on OS X, while they still have it listed in its dictionary.
