Look at FTPSettings (FTP) help.v4p for help.
I was trying to find a way to automatically (without user input) transfer images to a server. I found a nice little gem, the ftp.exe that apparently is included with windows. With a few creative batch scripts, it makes it possible to make an FTP connection through the shell, which means you can hack something together inside of VVVV!
Unfortunately it also means that there is basically no feedback, so you won’t know if your file is transferred successfully, etc… which is unfortunate and in some cases probably makes this node unusable.
In other words I can’t guarantee that this will work, I’ve done some limited testing and it works on my server, so let me know if it works or not for you. You have to make sure that your ftp.exe file is at c:\windows\system32\ftp.exe otherwise you will need to change the path in the .bat files.
THESE NODES ARE NOT SPREADABLE!!! However it MIGHT be possible to spread them and use mput and mget instead of put and get.
I’m not sure if/when I will work on these again, but it should be fairly easy to dissect what I’ve done if you need special/extended functionality- you just need to make a .bat file to call from shell execute, and then echo to a file the commands you want to run during the ftp connection. Here is a good document detailing the ftp.exe file: http://www.ss64.com/nt/ftp.html
Onward, to uploading images with HTTP Network Post!
