"*web/ftp;send"
« on: May 16, 2022, 03:47:30 PM »
I have a password with $ special character and passing this as a argument doesn't work.
Any suggestions appreciated.
Tried adding single quotes around pswd and url encoding the $ but this doesn't work.

Try putting a backslash before the $ i.e. \$.
Does that work?

Devon,
It does not. The line is still returning curl: (67) Access denied: 530

Devon,
It did work.  Sorry for the wrong answer.  Those single quotes were not noticed on the first attempt.
Thank you.

Yes single quotes are unnecessary as we pass the username and password to curl surrounded in double quotes already.

curl -u "username:password"

I am surprised that a $ needed to be escaped since we do pass it in the double quotes. We will have to look into what characters are special and escape them automatically if possible.
