Hi,

I'm using the Rebex.dll to connect via FTP to an IBM Server. After the established connection I try to list the files from home, but I get the following error: 550 LIST command failed - popen error: EDC5112I Resource temporarily unavailable.

Here the log:

550 LIST command failed - popen error: EDC5112I Resource temporarily unavailable. (errno2=0x0B250012)

What can I do?

Unfortunately, although this error was reported by the FTP server, it is not a FTP-level error - it represents an error that occurred at the OS level - the popen name seems indicates that the server was unable to open a directory. Also, from Google search results, it looks like the same error occurs in non-FTP scenarios.

The error message suggests that his might be a temporary condition, so it might be worth trying again. If it doesn't help, reporting this to server administrators would be the recommended action.
