using FTP command through unix

We need to upload a file to a client site but the users created the filename with a space External Information Package.zip. I tried using quotos and nothing happens
ftp > put "External Information Package.zip"

please help!

RE: using FTP command through unix

With globbing turned on, try using mput with a wildcard - something like:


ftp -> mput *Package.zip

Check out this online documentation link:



RE: using FTP command through unix

You can use this syntax:

put External\ Information\ Package\ .zip

Notice the space and the backslash!

Good luck!
