When I try to save JUNOS CLI output to an FTP server running on my Windows 7 machine all of the line breaks are missing when I view the file in MS Notepad. My research seems to point to two solutions:
1) Use a differnet text editor that supports both CRLF (MS OS) and LF (Unix-based OS)
2) Transfer your files in "ASCII" mode from the FTP client.
Does anyone know how to transfer via FTP in "ASCII" mode on the JUNOS platform?
JUNOS 10.3R3.7 on an SRX210
FileZilla FTP Server v0.9.37 beta and MS Notepad on Windows 7 SP1
The command I'm running is:
show | compare | no-more | save ftp://user:firstname.lastname@example.org/srxchanges.txt
Has anyone encountered this and come up with a workaround? Thank you.

Not sure you can change the option when doing a save from within the CLI. One solution would be to just save the file locally, drop out to the shell (start shell) and then do a regular ftp from the UNIX command line where you can directly control the ftp options.

If this worked for you please flag my post as an "Accepted Solution" so others can benefit. A kudo would be cool if you think I earned it.

Or just use WordPad (built in to Windows), Notepad++ (freeware), UltraEdit (payware), etc.
If you don't want to learn a new text editor, you could also use unix2dos to convert the unix files to dos format (the format you're probably used to).
