LFTP - ls can see files but "get: Access failed: 404 filenotfound (.\ReadMe.txt)" occ
I'm trying to develop an automatic downloader to work for auto-retrieving virus definitions.
Using lftp (LFTP | Version 4.0.7) running on Cygwin (1.5.10), (unfortunately on top of Windows XP SPLatest...)
I can login to the web site ok (Symantec, using anonymous account they advertise), and can drill down to eg:
lftp> pwd

and can see files ok: (after a little SNIPing...)
lftp> ls
-rw-r--r-- -- /mwg-internal/de5fs23hu73ds/files/javascript/sw.js
-rw-r--r-- -- /mwg-internal/de5fs23hu73ds/files/default/img/bg_titlebar.gif
drwxr-xr-x -- /public/english_us_canada/liveupdate/mac_liveupdate/updates
-rw-r--r-- -- CurrentVersion.txt
-rw-r--r-- --
drwxr-xr-x -- OldVersions
-rw-r--r-- -- ReadMe.txt
and have a local folder with permissions all set ok. (admin account on my local pc helps)
lftp> lcd LUTest/test
lcd ok, local cwd=/home/masmith2/LUTest/test


when I try to actually download a file - I get 404 file not found.

lftp> get1 -a ReadMe.txt
get1: Access failed: 404 filenotfound (ReadMe.txt)

I am hiding behind a boeing proxy server, but that's set up ok (before that, the lftp ls command didn't work.)
I've tried various flavors of get1 ./ReadMe.txt, verified case, all the simple things...

I've tried already.
I can access the ReadMe.txt and others thru Tnternet Exploder on the same computer at the same time no problem at all.

Any Thoughts????

I don't know of "get1" command in lftp (neither lftp in Cygwin)
but on my CentOS machine this gets me the file complete download

lftp -c "get -c"

or with:

get1 - get 1 file: settings list.
get1 is documented in the man page, also, as transfer a single file.
"First make it work, then make it work well..."

My suspicion is that there's a setting in the lftp settings that's not working well with my corporate proxy server, which I know will let me get the file with eg. Internet Explorer's ftp access.
