ftp mget issue

Hi All,

does anyone has the idea about the ftp return code 600? Its not listed uder ftp status codes.

Using webmethods ftp protocal, ftp.login, ftp.ls are success. but when doing the ftp.mget, we get the below error.

return code 600
returnmsg null

<-- 150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list.

Does anyone know why this returns code 600 and what could be the possible error?


We get the above error but files are successfully retrieved.

That means mget gets the files as well returns code 600 throwing ABORT statement.

Please Help.



obviously this is not a any standard error code, seems to be a explicitely programmed from on this FTP utlility where u r connecting…

I saw there was a similar issue reported under post http://www.wmusers.com/forum/showthread.php?p=67635&page=2
but no concrete solution. Just check with you FTP administrator or contact SAG.


Thanks for the prompt reply.

any other suggestions guys?


What FTP server vendor/version are you consuming?

Reply code 600 is not part of FTP protocol http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc0959.txt

As such, wM ftp client does not know how to handle the Reply.

Ops! it might be wM client it selves, try the following:

Modify cleanlinefeeds (default true) and set it to “false”.
