Usage

The simplest example (connect, change working dir, print working dir, close):

 | ftp connect | 192.168.1.10             | mylogin | mypassword |
 | cwd         | /home/myname/tmp/testdir |         |            |
 | pwd         |                          |         |            |
 | ftp close   |                          |         |            |

It is possible to use multiple ftp connections in parallel. Connections are identified by string identifiers:

 | ftp connect | 192.168.1.10             | mylogin  | mypassword  | connId=ftp1 |
 | ftp connect | 192.168.1.20             | mylogin2 | mypassword2 | connId=ftp2 |
 | cwd         | /home/myname/tmp/testdir | ftp1     |             |             |
 | cwd         | /home/myname/tmp/testdir | ftp2     |             |             |
 | pwd         | ftp2                     |          |             |             |
 | pwd         | ftp1                     |          |             |             |
 | ftp close   | ftp2                     |          |             |             |
 | ftp close   | ftp1                     |          |             |             |

During library import it is possible to disable logging of server messages. By default logging is enabled:

 | Library | FtpLibrary.py |

To disable logging of server messages, additional parameter must be added to import:

 | Library | FtpLibrary.py | False |

Running remotely

To run library remotely execute: python FtpLibrary.py ipaddress portnumber (for example: python FtpLibrary.py 192.168.0.101 8222)
