Hi,

I wish to download a text file from a remote server.
As Unix is case-sensitive, is it possible to download a file
regardless of the case-sensitivity of its filename?
That means if the server store this file named "ABC.TXT",
so even if I input "abc.txt", I can still download the file.

Thanks to advise if you have some solution.

It depends. You don't tell us HOW you are downloading the file (Tell The Details). For example, if you were using HTTP to contact a Tomcat web server, there's a switch in the context configuration that lets you turn off case sensitivity.

Hi,

I use ServerSocket to connect to the remote server.
My program is not a web application so I am not using tomcat.
It just FTP the file to local machine. Is there a way to search
for the file by ignoring the filename case-sensitivity?
Thanks.

Below are part of my codes:

/* @param dataSocket: The serverSocket created at local machine.
* @param pfilename: Remote file name
* @param pdestPath: Remote directory name
*/
private void getRemoteFile(ServerSocket dataSocket, String pfilename,
String pdestPath) throws IOException, FTPException
{
try
{
initializeGet(pfilename);
BufferedOutputStream out = new BufferedOutputStream(
new FileOutputStream(
pdestPath + File.separator + pfilename, false));
DataInputStream in = new DataInputStream(dataSocket.accept()
.getInputStream());
byte[] buffer = new byte[chunkSize];
int len = 0;
while ((len = in.read(buffer, 0, chunkSize)) > 0)
{
out.write(buffer, 0, len);
}
out.flush();
out.close();
in.close();
dataSocket.close();
}
}

I am not aware of any way to do case-insensitive FTP. You may want to check the documentation of your particular FTP server to see if there is an option.
