[RonW]: james28909 Why not write a Perl program to do the task?
[choroba]: RonW Yes, but then, one day, they needed to switch from FTP to SFTP, and... but I can't give the whole talk away here :)
[RonW]: Tunnel FTP through stunnel?
[james28909]: i guess i should have done it in perl. i bet it woulnt have taken me 5 hours to figure out haha
[choroba]: In the end, I was able to upgrade Perl from 5.8.3 to 5.22 and install Net::SFTP::Foreign , at least for the task involved
