Subject Re: problems with ftp task to VAX server

David, I don't have a VMS box to play with at the moment, but I guess that 
the VMS file version might be causing the problem.

I'd suggest trying to get the latest version (no ';*') of "test.txt" and 
see if that works. If it does, that might imply a problem with the fileset 
regex evaluation, or something flaky with the processing of the remote dir 
so that the file versions come back in a format that the FTP task or 
fileset doesn't handle properly.

You might also try "test.txt*" or "test.txt.*" (I've seen the version 
numbers returned as extensions like 'test.txt.1')

If you do a "dir" through FTP to the VMS box, what format is the listing 
in?  VMS "dir/full" or an "ls -l"?

I note that you're posting from yale - is this VMS system one I could 
hit?  I'd be willing to take a few stabs at it to see what is going on.

You may reply to me directly if you like.

         Ken
