Help Support Ethan

A Message From The Founder...

As the founder of Nagios, I'm asking for your help in a cause that's dear to my heart.

I'm launching a new project to help better the world by providing the information, ideas, and inspiration that I believe can improve the lives of people everywhere.

I know you're busy managing networks, but I would appreciate it if you would consider liking my Facebook page and showing your support for the content and messages I produce by sharing them with your friends and family.

You can learn more about my project by visiting Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

Check OFTP (Odette FTP server) connection.
It will create a TCP socket to an OFTP server and port then try to search for "READY" string in received data a defined amount of time (see help --> timeout option).

Usage: [options]

-h, --help show this help message and exit
-H HOSTNAME OFTP server address
-p PORT OFTP server port
-t TIMEOUT Response timeout (default: 5 secs)


python -H your_host -p port

Note: Timeout option needs a float integer (like "2.0" for two seconds) !


All you need is a standard Python installation. The script was created using Python 2.6, not sure if it will work with earlier versions.

Note: You can specify another shebang in the script (check first line).
