The Question is:
How do I display FTP transfer progress when running FTP in a command procedure
at the terminal?
When the commands are typed at the terminal, transfer progress is indicated on
the screen with # hash signs. If the commands are placed in a command
procedure, the hash signs are not displayed when the command procedure is
The Answer is :
There is no particular means to trace the progress of FTP activity,
though the Compaq FTSO package may be of interest -- FTSO provides
for FTP transfers that can be transparently restarted after a failed
network connection is restored.
Alternatively, please use COPY/FTP from DCL command procedures, and
please use the current TCP/IP Services release and associated ECO.
