I'm trying to use ftp automation to get files from our remote unix systems. But ftpgetlist returns nothing.
Below it is seen my script and log.

#  Script name : Ulus178.fscr

#  Description : Downloading items (files or folders) from remote to local host.


#initialize variables
setvar ~server_address, "";
setvar ~server_port, 21;
setvar ~login_name, "Admin";
setvar ~login_password, "Admin123";
setvar ~remote_path, "/swpkg_a/webct/data/";
setvar ~local_path, "c:\\logs";
setvar ~remote_fileformat, "*.*";

# setduperules function sets the rules to use if at the time of file transfer a duplicate file(a file with the same name
# as the file that is transferred) exists in the destination path. Before transferring the file the file that is to be transferred is
# compared with the file that already exists in the destination path. 1st argument('bysize' or 'bydate') to command setduperules specifies the file parameter to be compared.
# 2nd, 3rd and 4th argumnets("resume", "rename" , "overwrite", or "skip") specifies the transfer rule to be followed if the file to be transferred is
# less than the already existing file, identical to the already existing file and greater than the already existing file respectively.

# overwrite if older, skip if same date or newer.
setduperules bydate, overwrite, skip, skip;

# commands enablepasv and disablepasv speicifies server initiated (PORT) data connection and client initiated (PASV) data connection respectively for regular FTP connections without encryption.
# connection mode : passive

# commands ftpconnect, ftpconnectssh, ftpconnectssl or ftpconnectsslc are used to connect to the server.
# 1st and 2nd argument to the command specifies the IP address and listening port number of the server.
# 3rd and 4th arguments specify the username and password respectively of the user account, it is required for account login.

# Regular FTP connection is established using ftpconnect command, default port is 21.
ftpconnect(~server_address, ~server_port, ~login_name, ~login_password);

# ftpsetpath command is used to set the local and remote path
ftpsetpath local, ~local_path;
ftpsetpath remote, ~remote_path;

# ftpgetlist command is used to get local or remote folder listing.
ftpgetlist local, @local_list;
ftpgetlist remote, @remote_list;
foreach $rem_item in @remote_list begin
  print "dosya ",$;
# foreach command is used to process the items in a variable that has a folder listing.
foreach $rem_item in @remote_list begin
  if $rem_item.isfolder eq false begin
    # ftpwildcardmatch command can be used to perform wildcard matching such as * and ?
    ftpwildcardmatch $, ~remote_fileformat, "i";
    if success eq ftpresult begin
      # ftpdownload command is used to download either a file or a folder.
      # 1st argument to command ftpdownload specifies the type of download file, it can be either  'file' or 'folder'.
      # 2nd argument specifies the name of the remote file to be downloaded.
      # 3rd argument is optional, it is used to specify the name in which the downloaded remote file must be saved in the local path.
      # if 3rd argument is omitted, the downloaded remote file will be saved with its remote file name in the local path.
      ftpdownload file, $;
      if ftpresult eq success begin
        # print a message to the user.
        print "command: ftpdownload; argument: file, ", $, "; status: pass;";
      end else begin
        # print a message to the user.
        print "command: ftpdownload; argument: ", $, "; status: fail;";

It looks like you are using regular FTP to connect to the remote server. Are you able to see any items in the folder when you connect to the server using the command line ftp.exe program?
