Apple Mac FTP

This may be a long shot, but here goes...

I have an Apple Mac running Panther that I use to collect stats from my router. I want to be able to automatically upload the stats to my plusnet webspace.

I used to do this on Pipex and it worked fine. I use the command line FTP program and run it from a cron job. However, whenever it runs (either via cron or manually) it hangs and then returns a connection timeout.

I don't get this problem when using it with other web servers.

Has anyone else ever tried this?

Does anyone know how to get around the problem?

Any help appreciated.

I have now managed to get around the problem.

In case anyone wants to do this in future I downloaded cmdftp from sourceforge. Cmdftp is a command line ftp program (although has unusual commands) for Max OS X and works fine with the plusnet site.
