FTP Test

Filed under: Programs and Scripts — chaplic @ 4:11 pm


FTPTest is a small application for testing the reliability of FTP servers. You supply it with a file, how many times you want the upload the file and it does the rest.  I wrote it to test the most horrible problem to fix – an intermittent fault.

If your source file was test.txt and you selected to upload to times, you would get testn.txt on the remote FTP server, where n is an increasing number

FTPTest is configured via a small INI file, simply edit this in notepad or similar:

#host – address of FTP server

#directory – what directory to change to after login

#username – what user to login as

#password – what password to use

#origfile – what file to upload. This is copied to
# filenameN where N is an incrementing number depending on howmany

#howmany – number of repetitions of upload

To download the program, click on this link. Be sure to get in touch to say hello if you find it of use!
