    cfftp existsFile failure

    cfcoder2

      I'm using CF8 trying to get <cfftp action="existsFile"... > to work.  It's not returning any cfftp struct but throwing an error.

      The error says:

      DateTime - 06/08/2009 03:00:12 PM
      Diagnostics - null null
      The error occurred on line 82.
      Template - /dynamic/ftp_download.cfm


      The stack trace says:

      The cfftp tag used is (with actual remotefile path modified for security reasons)...

       

      <cfftp action="existsfile"
          username="anonymous@abc.ftptoday.com"
          password="webmaster@abc.com"
          server="proxy.abc.com"
          passive="yes"
          remotefile="updates/v1_9/win/patchfile/xyzpatch.exe"
          timeout="90">

       

      I'm on Sun version of CF8.

      I find NO examples in any Adobe docs!

      I find no discussion of this in LiveDocs or here on this forum.

      Is there a better way to do this?
