Default Flash FXP w/ Windows Scheduler

Hi all,

I am trying to set Flash FXP up to work in conjuction with windows scheduler on XP to download several files on an FTP site, i am having trouble with the command line. I can get it to download a single file but not the contents of the directory (about 30 files). I have tried mput, mget, *.*, / on the end of etc but none of this works. Can anyone help?

you can directly in flashfxp queue up that directory and save the queue file.
then just schedule to run flashfxp with that queue.

As MxxCon suggested, create a queue and save it, then put the following command into your schedule:
"<full path to flashfxp.exe>" -go -c2 "<path to your queue file (.fqf)>"

You might want to uncheck the "Exit with non-empty queue"-confirmation in the options, to be able to let FlashFXP fully close when done - even with failed files (which normally is automatically saved and can be found in "Restore Queue" later on).

Hope it can help you out

If you set it to download a specific path/directory (on the remote site), it will.

You might then want to set FlashFXP up to "skip" existing files with the same date/time, unless it's only one file that gets updated daily - then it should "overwrite" instead.

So all in all, it depends on what's in the folder you want to download from.

You could also just do it in another way, by selecting a specific file from a date or something, by using something like:
"<full path to flashfxp.exe>" -go -c2 -download <sitename> -remotepath="<full filepath on remote site>" -localpath="<full filepath on local computer>"

Thanks for the quic reply, this is the current line i have in...

C:\PROGRA~1\FlashFXP\FlashFXP.exe -get -C2 -localpath="C:\AV\NTDATS\" ftp://ftp.nai.com/pub/antivirus/datfiles/4.x/

It finds the directory, loads it but then doesnt queue the files or download them!

Try create a Site with the name of NAI.

Then change the command to:
C:\PROGRA~1\FlashFXP\FlashFXP.exe -get -c2 -download NAI -localpath="C:\AV\NTDATS\" -remotepath="/pub/antivirus/datfiles/4.x/"


You might be able to solve it better by creating a queue which includes "/pub/antivirus/datfiles/4.x/" that should be saved into "C:\AV\NTDATS\".

Then you can just use the command:
C:\PROGRA~1\FlashFXP\FlashFXP.exe -go -c2 "<path to your queue file (.fqf)>"
