I am trying to download all the pdf's from an ftp.
I get the following error and from what i found the error means.
"The server does not support the functionality required to fulfill the request. This is the appropriate response when the server does not recognize the request method and is not capable of supporting it for any resource."
How else can one download from a ftp server?
I appreciate the help!
import os import os.path from ftplib import FTP directory = "\\blah" #location of folder on ftp copy_files = "*.pdf" # This is the files i would like to copy from the ftp site folder = "D:\\temp\\temp\\" out_path = os.path.join(folder) #FTP logon ftp = FTP("ftp.blah.blah") ftp.login("blah1", "blah2") # navigate folder ftp.cwd(os.path.join(directory, copy_files)) print "Changed to " + os.path.join(directory, copy_files) #Now get a list of all files in the folder filenames = ftp.nlst() print filenames #and loop through the filenames to download the files to your local 'folder' for f in filenames: with open(os.path.join(out_path, f), 'wb') as local_file: ftp.retrbinary('RETR '+ f, local_file.write) ftp.close() print "closed ftp connection"
