    • IzPack version 3.5.1 was used to create the Java based installer, but is not supplied in the NWFTPCLU.ZIP file.

    Java-based NetWare to NetWare DEL, DIR, GET, MOVE, PUT and RNFR/RNTO utilities capable of single file, single directory or single directory tree operations.

    Within the com.xaro.NWFTPCLU.jar file are six command line FTP based utilities:

    • NWFTPDEL which essentially performs both FTP delete and rmdir commands.
    • NWFTPDIR which essentially performs an FTP dir command.
    • NWFTPGET which essentially performs an FTP get command.
    • NWFTPMV which essentially performs an FTP equivalent of the move command.
    • NWFTPPUT which essentially performs an FTP put command.
    • NWFTPREN which essentially performs both FTP rnfr and rnto commands.

    Using the FTP protocol, these programs will work with...

    • A single source file or...
    • All files within a source directory or...
    • All files and directories within a source directory tree...

    .. either from or to a NetWare 5.1 or 6.X server that is running the NetWare FTP server.

    Connecting to UNIX and Windows NT/2000 based FTP servers should work, but has not been thoroughly tested.

    New in version 1.9C:

    • The automatically created scripts have been modified to handle installation paths that contain blanks.
    • The default assumption if the operating system being used as an FTP client was not tested by the author of this program is to assume a BASH shell frendly operating system. For example, on Solaris, the scripts will be built assuming that a BASH shell (/bin/bash) is being used by the session that will be using the NWFTPxxx.sh scripts generated by the NWFTPCLU installation application.

      If the bash shell executible is not located in the /bin/bash path, then manually changing the first line of the automatically generated scripts will be needed so that the actual path to the bash shell executible is referenced in these scripts.

    FTP Client Requirements:

    A NetWare JVM version of at least 1.3.1 is required to install the NWFTPCLU utilities via the IzPack version 3.5.1 installer.

    A NetWare JVM version of at least 1.3.1 is required to execute the NWFTPGUI class file.

    A NetWare JVM version of at least 1.2.2 is required to execute the NWFTPDEL, NWFTPDIR, NWFTPGET, NWFTPMV, NWFTPPUT and NWFTPREN class files.

    A NetWare JVM version of at least 1.2.2 is required to execute the classes contained within the com.xaro.NWFTPCLU.jar file, except in the case of the NWFTPGUI.class file which requires a JVM version of at least 1.3.1 to function properly. Therefore, as long as the NWFTPGUI utility is not used, and both the com.xaro.NWFTPCLU.jar file and the ftp.jar file are available, a JVM version of 1.2.2 can be used to execute the other NWFTPxxx utilities contained within the com.xaro.NWFTPCLU.jar file.

    A NetWare JVM version of at least 1.2.2 is required to execute the classes contained within the ftp.jar file.

    These utilities were designed with a NetWare console environment in mind except for the NWFTPGUI utility which is graphical.

    Because the NWFTPCLU utilities are built using the Java language, they will also run on other Sun Java platforms such as Linux and Microsoft Windows Me/2000/XP with a Sun JRE version of at least 1.3.1.

    I would recommend using the NWFTPGUI utility, if you are not familiar with the operating system shell being used on the platform you are working with.

    How to install these utilities on a NetWare host:

    Note: The NetWare host acting as an FTP client does not need to have Novell's FTP server installed on it.

    Note: All NWFTPCLU FTP client host's must have a JRE or JVM that is version 1.3, 1.4 or 1.5 to install these utilities.

    Note: These utilities have only been tested with versions 1.3, 1.4 and 1.5 of the Sun Java Virtual Machine.

    1. Download the NWFTPCLU.ZIP file and extract it's contents using an UNZIP utility.

      The NWFTPCLU.ZIP file contains a single file named NWFTPCLU-1.9C-install.jar.

      With NetWare 6.X the UNZIP NLM can be used to extract the NWFTPCLU-1.9C-install.jar file from the NWFTPCLU.ZIP file.

      Example: UNZIP -x -d vol1:\jarfiles.dir vol1:\NWFTPCLU.ZIP

      The above command will extract any files within the NWFTPCLU.ZIP file to the vol1:\jarfiles.dir directory.

    2. If needed, copy the NWFTPCLU-1.9C-install.jar file to the NetWare 5.1 or NetWare 6.X, 32-bit Windows or 32-bit Linux host that will be acting as an FTP client.

    3. Install the utilities.

      At the NetWare command line console prompt, type:
      java -jar {Full NetWare path to the NWFTPCLU-1.9C-install.jar file}
      Example:
      java -jar vol1:\downloads\NWFTPCLU-1.9C-install.jar
      At the Linux command line console prompt, type:
      java -jar {Full Linux file system path to the NWFTPCLU-1.9C-install.jar file}
      Example:
      java -jar /downloads/NWFTPCLU-1.9C-install.jar
      At the Windows command line console prompt, type:
      java -jar {Full Windows file system path to the NWFTPCLU-1.9C-install.jar file}
      Example:
      java -jar d:\downloads\NWFTPCLU-1.9C-install.jar

    4. Select a language for the installer application to use. Note: The installer application may be multi-lingual, however, the NWFTPCLU utilities themselves only output messages in English.

    5. Follow the online installation instructions.
