QUICKLY copying files from one NAS to another


This is probably a silly question… why am I getting the “rror: No such file or directory” error. Looks like it is confused with the -mirror command. However I got that from here… http://community.wdc.com/t5/My-Book-Live-Duo/QUICKLY-copying-files-from-one-NAS-to-another-using-wget/td-p/349937 (for some reason I can’t post a comment in the thread)

I am trying to copy files across NAS’s using FTP which I believe will be faster than the painfully slow windows drag and drop method.

wget -mirror -np -x --no-host-directories  ftp://admin:admin@“Shared Videos”/“Released 2007”
–2012-07-14 02:20:52--  ftp://admin:*password*@
=> `Public/Shared Videos/.listing’
Connecting to… connected.
Logging in as admin … Logged in!

==> TYPE I … done. ==> CWD /Public/Shared Videos … done.
==> PASV … couldn’t connect to port 5039: Connection refused
rror: No such file or directory
No URLs found in rror.


The way your post looks, it appears that it’s the PASV command that isn’t working.

Try adding the command --no-passive-ftp 

Thanks.  I’ll check it out tonight and report back.  I am hopeful as when trying to connect via a FTP client it error on “PASV”.
