I'm retired but the old company wants me to fix some code I worked on before when I was there. The issues are with the Net::FTP module. This works OK generally as the network is private. The send servers are UNIX and the remote server is Windows Server. Once a new connection has been made with the remote server and either the link goes down or the remote server goes down, is that object still defined? Also, my new connection sets the Timeout value to 15 seconds. Should subsequent commands also set this value or is this not necessary or even possible?
