FTP AUTOMATED TRANSFERS


Automatic file transfer through a script
between machines using FTP.

If one wants to transfer files between
UNIX machines, here are the steps to follow.
1. The .netrc file
a. create .netrc in the home directory.
b. add this line
machine login password

e.g.
machine abc.mydomain.com login deepak password deep123

c. chmod 600 .netrc

2. The Script:
ftp abc.mydomain.com << endl
prompt
put test1.c
quit
endl

This should do it.
