hi! i'm complete newbee in linux but i managed somehow to install unix on asus wl500gp router.now im using 500gb with external hdd with transmission for torrent download and it works fine.
the only problem is that i want to copy downloaded files to mediaplayer tvix m6500 in background mode. i tried curl and it worked ok :
curl -T test.avi ftp://192.168.1.111/disk1/VIDEO/Action, adventure, fiction/ --user tvixftp:A05115
but i have to create terminal connection from my computer to initiate this upload:
but curl does not work in background mode by default, right?
and i want to start upoad, turn my computer off and close terminal connection, leaving wput on background ...
so i tried wput :
wput -b test.avi ftp://tvixftp:A05115@192.168.1.111/disk1/VIDEO/Action, adventure, fiction/
Connecting to 192.168.1.111:21... failed!
Waiting 10 seconds... Connecting to 192.168.1.111:21... failed!
Waiting 10 seconds...
so the questions are :
1. what i did wrong with wput ? curl was indicating error codes, so i was able to track problem, but not with wput
2. what is the easest way to organize background download for a amateur in linux?
