URL Access Scripting and ports?!?

hi,

i sent this to the applescript-users mailing list but they are busy...

so i was hoping some body has a little experience in this and can advise...

i have a slight problem here using the URL Access

Scripting ability to upload files via ftp. i tried a

few times to upload a file to a machine that has a non

standard ftp port - not 21. when i tried to upload

file to a different machine that has a standart ftp

port listening - no problem. i really need to upload

the file to the non standard port machine.

can i or not with URL Access Scripting?!?

(i alreday tried ftp://un:[email protected]:port - it

times out)

if i can not (WHY?) - is there an easier way instead

of writing a script for fetch.

this is for a client that is still on OS 9.2...

any idea appreciated....

thanks..

ok. i started doing a script for fetch...

can somebody please explain why this script isn't working?!

set the_file to "Path:to:textfile.txt"

set gDesturl to "ftp://user:pass@host:port"

with timeout of 60000 seconds

tell application "Fetch 4.0"

put into url gDesturl item the_file

-- quit

end tell

end timeout

in the Fetch folder there is a drop script. if you drop a file over it it works. i copied this from that one. it seams the problem is the definition of the file variable but i don't get why....

the error i get when i try to run this script is:

Fetch 4.0 got an error: a descriptor type mismatch occurred.

according to the AppleScript dictionary for Fetch 4.0 there isn't anything wrong with this syntax...

thanks..
