I'm just an average person, that uniquely combines strict, engineering mind with a non-schematic, humanistic and magical way of looking on life and surrounding world.

Add a little bit of madness, and you'll get entire picture of me! :]

I'm a developer, both desktop and mobile, with 15+ years of experience and 50+ small-to-big projects on account. In the very same time I'm a writer with similar experience and a lot of books, articles, blog posts or own blogs ideas on account.

comment FTP 550 error when trying to copy file
I found solution myself. It was problem with file owner. cd to directory containing "problematic" file (or any parent one) and execute chown -R trejder * to change the owner of file to my own. Apparently copying file there and back again did something similar. I can't put that answer here, because you put question "on hold". Still can't understand, how questions related to file owners and file rights are off-topic in this site, but OK. No, I haven't checked out that thread, because I wasn't aware of it. Thanks for all, anyway. Cheers.

comment IO Error in rsync while doing everyday backup
No and no! :] I've just checked with your command in both sbin and bin folders and e2fsck is the only one, I have there. As for man -- this command has been removed from my very limited distro (this is NAS, not Linux, and creators seems to assume, that user should not use it at all via shell).

comment Two exact copies of folder using FTP and command-line only
@angus: Maybe "many" is to strong word. I've tried rsync+mounting external system (faild) and unison (also failed). Installing additional software is an option, but only if that software is available as IPKG package, because using Optware/IPKG is the only way to install something to that NAS. And AFAIK there is not IPKG package for lftp.

comment Two exact copies of folder using FTP and command-line only
@sch: Exactly as in my answer to Gilles comment above: Two devices in two different networks, one is NAS, second is video-player with some unknown distro on-board, able to be access only via FTP (and Samba).

comment Two exact copies of folder using FTP and command-line only
@Gilles: First option: I have a limited NAS (has rsync and ftp but lacks many system-level commands, clients, services and programs) and even more limited video-player that actually gives out nothing else except FTP (and Samba). To make things even more complex, both devices are not in the same network and are accessible only via external IP (NAS has it own, player is behind NAT and uses DynDNS to workaround dynamic IP address problem).

This does sound interesting, unfortunatelly, there is no lftp on my NAS and no way to install it. I asked for FTP, because this is all I have there. If installing addtional software would be an option, I would problably solve this problem myself, without asking.

This does sound interesting, unfortunatelly, there is no curlftpfs on my NAS and no way to install it. I asked for FTP, because this is all I have there. I'll give a try to wput, but after first look it looks only like a file-transfering tool, so I would have to do all the magic (that rsync does) of finding and sending only modified files myself. I'm pretty sure that it is more than I can handle due to my limited knowledge of Linux/bash.

Hm... I'm a Linux newbie, but I have to revalidate my knowledge. All my sources about rsync that I have read always claimed: You want to use rsync over FTP? You need to find another way to do this. rsync does not work that way! Look here and here for example.
