The Microsoft FTP command provides the ability to use scripted FTP logins. LifeKeeper will create an empty login script file for each protected FTP site and the file names will match the FTP site names. The empty scripts are not used by LifeKeeper until written with FTP commands. They are created in the following folder:
<LifeKeeper Root Install Folder>\admin\kit\webapp
For instance, an empty login script for the “Default FTP Site” would be located at:
<LifeKeeper Root Install Folder>\admin\kit\webapp\Default FTPSite.txt
Spaces are permitted in the file name so it can match the FTP site name exactly with a .txt extension. The content of the script should include only 4 lines containing the FTP open command, the login ID, the login password, and the FTP bye command. For example, a login script might contain the following 4 lines:
LifeKeeper will use a search mechanism for each response from the FTP client utility. A response starting with “230” indicates a successful login. A login failure will fail the deep check process. Other commands can be added to the script but they will be ignored by LifeKeeper.
