Hi experts:

I transfer via ftp many files from HP-UX O.S. into directory of windows machine

From HP-UX I run cksum command and I used fciv utility from windows.

Now I need to check the same command fciv on HP-UX O.S.

I tried md5sum openssl csum commands but It doesn't run.

Have you idea for similar command on HP-UX B.11.00?

    You'll have to install the md5 bundle.  A lot of proprietary Unix only have cksum by default.

    Or you can install unix utils and run cksum in Windows

    Alternatively use rsync to transfer the files, the tool utilises / incorporates MD5 logic to verify transmitted files, also allows transmissions to be resumed. Will save you a manual post transmission check.

    You'll need a Windows rsync install or variant e.g. DeltaCopy, cwrsync, QtdSync.......

    Some FTP clients and servers support the itegrity checking which allow you to validate a transfer.  

    The Robo-FTP client has an /integrity option that can use the following raw FTP checksum commands:
    XCRC (64-bit hash)
    XMD5 (128-bit)
    XSHA1 (160-bit)

    Of course, for it to work the FTP server has to also support the command but that is not so unusual these days.
