in reply to How to catch Net::FTP timeouts ?

If I understand well, what you want is explained in the documentation. Here it is an extract from Net::FTP docs:
CONSTRUCTOR new (HOST [,OPTIONS]) This is the constructor for a new Net::FTP object. "HOST" is the name of the remote host to which a FTP connection is required. "OPTIONS" are passed in a hash like fashion, using key and value pairs. Possible options are: Firewall - The name of a machine which acts as a FTP ... Port - The port number to connect to on the remote machine for the FTP connection Timeout - Set a timeout value (defaults to 120) Debug - debug level (see the debug method in the Net::Cmd manpage) ...
Timeout here is the key option, so you can say:
my $ftp = Net::FTP->new( $myhost, Timeout => 10, Debug => 1 ); ... $ftp->get($myfile) or warn("Can't get file $myfile"); $ftp->quit();
Hope this helps.

    Thank you for the hint, but we had the default, which is 2 minutes.
    For a quasi inhouse line, there should be no timeouts at all, but this problem is not Perl related ;-) If it does not recover after 120s it will never come back.

    And it came to pass that in time the Great God Om spake unto Brutha, the Chosen One: "Psst!"
