cd MSCM/DSSO
 
(or DSSO)

ftp -nv srvname

user <userid>

prompt

cd /law/c0xxyy/gen/perms_files

Re: Need script to ftp single file

A quick Google search yielded some good results: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=windows+ftp+batch+file

 

Basically it will require 2 files.

 

The contents of the first file, names ftp-file.script, should be:

 

open srvname

userid

password

lcd /D "D:\MSCM\DSSO"

bin
prompt
cd /law/c0xxyy/gen/perms_files
pwd
dir
get DSSO.jar

bye

 

 

The second file, named ftp-file.bat, should be:

 

ftp -i -s:ftp-file.script

 

Then, when you want to FTP the file, just run the ftp-file.bat file.

Re: Need script to ftp single file

Hi Patrick ,

I did the same as you said .Created 2 files 1 with name ftp-file.script on to which i copied the content & run the command ftp -inv -s:ftp-file.script from the command prompt and got the below error ;

C:\Users\VPatankar>ftp -inv -s:ftp-file.script
Error opening script file ftp-file.script.

Transfers files to and from a computer running an FTP server service
(sometimes called a daemon). Ftp can be used interactively.


Please suggest ...

Thanks Vishal

Re: Need script to ftp single file

Are both files in the same directory?

 

The error indicates that it can't find the ftp-file.script file.

Re: Need script to ftp single file

In my example the lines with userid and password are the actual userid and password.  You do NOT specify "user userid" or "password passw0rd" you just specify kvaze and passw0rd on each line.
