Hi,

I am using the Korn Shell. when the Get command is executed it gives the following error.

ERROR [s247.txt]: not an SCCS file (co1)

What is this error and how to get rid of it.

Thanks
Suresh

That sounds like you are executing a 'get s247.txt' outside of an FTP session. In that case the shell would attempt to execute the 'get' command with is an SCCS command.

Do this:

which get

I'm sure it will show that you are accessing the sccs command.

To do an ftp "get", first you have to go into ftp, for example

ftp someIpAddress


Then, after you are in ftp, the "get" command will be the one that retrieves a file.
