# [Geek] Getting ftp task to work in Ant / Eclipse

Note to self:

The FTP task in Ant relies on the library: commons-net.jar from Apache.

Be not confused, this is different from the library: ant-commons-net.jar, which I believe is the Ant interface to commons-net.jar.

In other words, you need them both, in ant_home\lib. If they are not both there you can a ridiculously cryptic error message.

p.s. Didn't I say "GEEK" ?
Dave, thanks for the words of encouragement.
