Anyone know what up with that?  This is what it return if no one is 
connected to the server in question via FTP.  I guess I could add 2 
if statements that set the value equal to 0 if its null.  Problem is 
I don't know jack about perl.

Problem with Externale get '`perl /home/www/mrtg/ftpstat.pl`':
    Expected an INTEGER for 'in' but got ''

Problem with Externale get '`perl /home/www/mrtg/ftpstat.pl`':
     Expected an INTEGER for 'out' but got ''

Here's the perl script:

@res = `/usr/bin/ftpcount`;
$time = time();

foreach $res (@res) {
         if ($res =~ /(\d+)\susers$/) { $users = $1 } else { next }

$uptime = `uptime`;

$uptime =~ /up (.*?),/;
$up = $1;

print "$users\n";
print "$users\n";
print "$up\n";
print "vinnie.ksu.ksu.edu\n";

And here's the simple .cfg
