File transfer Alpha VMS to NT software

By daigle_le ·
Do you know of a VMS compatable software that can lock a file while it's being "put" in a NT directory? FTP bombs when end users at remote locations open their files before the automated download is complete causing me to have to monitor an automated system.

File transfer Alpha VMS to NT software

The locking at the NT end is NT's problem. I'm surprised that the ftp server (client in PASV mode?) isn't locking the file for exclusive write.

I'd think a different ftp on the NT end is needed.

Alternatively, you might try sending the file with a randomly-generated garbage name, then renaming it when you're done. The users won't see the file they want until it's complete.
