Writing my first script and need help. when I run this Connection fails. Looking at site Manager for this site on the GUI front-end I see port number is set to 31110. When the script runs, port number =21 in the log file.
Can someone help me? How do I change the port number in the open command? I tried -port=31110 and the script will not even run.
