RFC 959, "File Transfer Protocol", October 1985

Source of RFC: Legacy
Area Assignment: app

Errata ID: 5451
Status: Reported
Type: Technical

Reported By: David LAMBERT
Date Reported: 2018-08-03

Section APPENDIX II says:

         CWD /usr/dm
         200 directory changed to /usr/dm

...
         CWD overrainbow
         431 No such directory

It should say:

         CWD /usr/dm
         250 directory changed to /usr/dm

...
         CWD overrainbow
         550 No such directory

Notes:

Reply codes in the examples are not conform to the specification :
200 is not a valid code for CWD. It should be 250 (Requested file action okay, completed).
431 is not a valid code for CWD and is not defined in the RFC. It should be 550 (Requested file action not taken).
