    Hi

    I have been FTP'ing successfully for a while now.

    However, since moving from XP to Vista, I find that WS_FTP Pro hangs after a data transfer.

    A reboot restarts the FTP process ( I can't remember the commands for viewing and restarting BASH processes :confused: ).

    I decided to upgrade to the latest version of EndPad - I think I now have the correct one on the Tivo as telnet shows that it needs its permissions changed to 755.

    Anyway, has anyone successfully FTP'd from Vista to Tivo?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, no problems using SmartFTP.

    Thanks, I'll try one of those next time I need to transfer something.

    [Edit] Can anyone give me the commands in telnet needed to see, and restart the Tivo FTP process?

    Many thanks.

    I do the following:

    ps auxw | grep tivoftpd - which returns, amongst other things, the process-id.
    kill -9 [process-id] - which kills the process.
    /var/hack/tivoftpd - which restarts it.

    Eg.

    bash-2.02# ps auxw | grep tivoftpd
    root 119 1.0 0.0 0 0 ? SW 12:13 0:00 /var/hack/tivoftpd
    root 164 8.0 0.0 0 0 p0 SW 12:13 0:00 grep tivoftpd
    bash-2.02#
    bash-2.02# kill -9 119
    bash-2.02#
    bash-2.02# /var/hack/tivoftpd
    bash-2.02#
    bash-2.02#

    Thanks, that's really useful.

    But it's the bit before that that I need - don't I need to enter another shell?

    That's the bit I can't remember.

    [Edit] I remembered! It's tivosh
    Your command
    ps auxw | grep tivoftpd
    gives the error message
    called "ps" with too many arguments

    I just telnet in and enter the commands at the bash prompt as I've listed them - you don't need to do anything before (ie. tivosh).

    Odd. I get
    bash: ps: command not found
    in the Bash shell, but ps works fine in tivosh

    Never mind, it's all sorted now.
