Unix Script to Automate FTP Process

Unix Script to Automate FTP Process
Normally we come across the situation when we have to FTP file daily.Doing this process daily for large no of files can be cumbersome.We can create Unix script to automate FTP Process

Currently we need to last day files from production to dev box for testing,so we created below mentioned script to FTP files daily

b=`TZ=CST+24 date +%y%m%d` ###To get last date
cd /export/home/mydir
ftp -v -n FTP_HOST_NAME EOF ##Please put two less than sign before EOF
user Userid Pwd
bin
cd /export/home/source_dir
get FILE_NAME.`echo $b`
bye
EOF

Please note replace FTP_HOST_NAME,Userid,Pwd with your actual userid,password and ftp host name.


Please put two less than sign before EOF in third line of script as i am not able to display those characters due to some restrictions.

If you have further queries then please mail to support@itnirvanas.com
