Use NFTP. That's the only thing that works.

JFTP works, for me. https://www.jmethods.com/mvn-repo/com/myjavaworld/jftp/5.0.1/jftp-5.0.1-bin.zip

It is a JAVA program, with all of the problems that go along with that, but it does work. Start with:
Code: [Select]
java -Xmx512m -Xms32m -jar jftp-5.0.1.jar

Hobbes works in passive mode.

= PASSIVE FTP MODE =

I hope they will not blame me for some trash in "incoming".

Yes, "passive mode" is the correct answer. I have that enabled in NFTP. I guess any FTP client that supports passive mode can be used.

No they won't because I also regularly place trash into the incoming directory  :)

Hi

In my case it seemed that some ftp software tries to do multiple ftp connections and hobbes was rejecting those. I set in my ftp client  "Maximun number of connections = 1" and I have no problem uploading.  It will depend of the ftp client where is that setting.

Bonjour,
Instead of opening a new thread I prefer to dig up this one, since this can also be considered as a strange behaviour of Hobbes web interface.

I wonder if anyone here also noticed that since Hobbes went "SSL", the sort option doesn't seem to work anymore ("search=&stype=any&sort=date&dir=%2F"), especially the "sort by date".
Using ISO date format would be easier for this, but anyway I am sure that a good script can deal with a date string.  :P

OK. Some will tell me the date field doesn't mean anything with the All Ye Olde Archives posted recently, but still.

Have a nice day you all !

Hey Guillaume
Does this do what you are wanting?
https://hobbes.nmsu.edu/?dir=%2F&stype=all&sort=type_date&search=%2F

Hi Andy!
Yes, this works better than what is provided by the available search button but for root only, it seems.

Curiously, this does not work from /pub/incoming, pub/java, pub/java/apps, ...
https://hobbes.nmsu.edu/?dir=%2Fpub%2Fincoming&stype=all&sort=type_date&search=
isn't sorted by date.

Something is apparently broken.

<shameless plug>Of course NDFS FTP plugin can show you the remote directory and allows you to sort it like you want with the available DIR arguments, but still.
Hi to Vitali Pelenyov, BTW.</shameless plug> ;)
