File upload, via my HTTP to my anon FTP site

Hi

I want setup a CGI that can upload a file via our web browser (Netscape) to my anon FTP site, not my HTTP. All the CGI I looked were done to upload to the same directorie of the CGI. I want upload in my ftp site (ftp://....) via my HTTP site (http://...). I try some, but they were like I see  before. My server is running the Unix and support perl 5 (perl 4 to). And, I only know the base of the perl. If someone know were I can find one like I want or could write it for me (I don't think someone will do this!), I'll appreciate. A last thing, I try all those in CGI-RESSOURCE and no one fit.


Thanks!

Usually these are unrelated tasks, so you should look for resources on doing ftp, stole routines from them, and put them in your program with routines for file upload.

Well,

I would open a connection to the ftp site, whereas it is on
your site or not.
Let's take the README file. Call is something like:

http://your.http.site/cgi-bin/yourcgi?file_to_ftp=README

I would do:

#!/usr/local/bin/perl -Tw
#
# yourcgi
#
use strict ;
use CGI ;
use LWP ;
$ENV{'PATH'} = '/your/bin' ;       # -T option...
my $input = new CGI ;              # Get the parameter
my $URL = "ftp::/your.ftp.site" . $input->param('file_to_ftp') ;
my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new ;
my $res = $ua->request(HTTP::Request->new('GET',$URL)) ;
unless ($res->is_success) {
  &Your_Error_Subroutine ;
  exit ;
}
my $file = $res-content ;
print $file ;
exit ;

Hope this fit your request,          Jean-Damien.
