We've been experiencing the following problem for a long time now, and getting to the conclusion that there is something going wrong with the "CD" command without parameters, after a "synchronize".

We are using the following script, which is called with one parameter containing an existing subdir:

Code:

option batch on
option confirm off
option transfer bin
option exclude */

open -timeout=120 ftp://yyyyy:xxxxxx@www.zzzzzzz.nl
# Starting in home directory of useraccount, moving to base sync folder
cd htdocs/secret/lccam
# rename sync-folder to avoid simultaneous downloads by users
mv "%1%" "%1%_uploading"
cd "%1%_uploading"
synchronize remote \\sngserver02\SNGProducts\LCCAMQM31\INTL -criteria=both -delete
# moving back to home folder
cd
# moving to base sync folder
cd htdocs/secret/lccam
#undo rename, allowing downloads again
mv "%1%_uploading" "%1%"
close
exit


Every time we run this script and there is nothing to synchronize, it all works well
Every time we run this script and there is something to synchronize, the synchronize goes well, but the "CD" command after the "synchronize" doesn't take me to the home directory but to the directory it was in just before the synchronize command.

We suspect that this is caused by a reconnect that is done when a timeout occurs (and this happens frequently with our ftp-server:-(). It looks like the reconnect changes the home-directory of the session to the directory that was current when the timeout occurred.

See the following log. As you can see at timestamp 2011-01-25 03:52:28.356 the "Changing to Home directory" results in the current directory /usr/local/WWW/A/.5c2/s/sgpartn1/htdocs/secret/lccam/31/beta_uploading

cd without path argument does not so anything (or actually it throws an error) as the argument is mandatory.

You are wrong, at least according to the online scripting manual and normal practices on *nix and ftp

https://winscp.net/eng/docs/scriptcommand_cd

Quote:
Changes remote working directory for active session.
cd [ <directory> ]
If directory is not specified, changes to home directory.
Examples:
cd /home/martin
cd


I don't know where you get the error ... but i don't and you can verify that in the log i posted at the top of this thread. See the log-entry at 2011-01-25 03:52:28.356
