Need help for ftp a file from unix to windows server

I have a problem with ftp. i want to ftp a file "file.txt" from unix box to windows server.
The destination folder is something like this:


ftp -v -d -n > ftplog <<!EOF

open windowsservername


cd "\\windowsservername\apps\is\"  /////Here i have problem with windows path

put file.txt  



I was successful while ftp'ing file from UNIX to UNIX server...
My problem is, how to mention the windows path there.I dont have access to windows server. We can just view the refernce directory by searching in the network.

i tried
cd "\\windowsservername\apps\is\"
cd "\\apps\is\"
cd "apps\is\"       :wall:///Nothing is working

Please help me....

smbstatus - report on current Samba connections SYNOPSIS
smbstatus [ -P ] [ -b ] [ -d ] [ -L ] [ -p ] [ -S ] [ -s <configuration file> ] [ -u <username> ] DESCRIPTION
This tool is part of the Samba suite. smbstatus is a very simple program to list the current Samba connections. OPTIONS
-P If samba has been compiled with the profiling option, print only the contents of the profiling shared memory area. -b gives brief output. -d gives verbose output. -L causes smbstatus to only list locks. -p print a list of smbd(8) processes and exit. Useful for scripting. -S causes smbstatus to only list shares. -s <configuration file> The default configuration file name is determined at compile time. The file specified contains the configuration details required by the server. See smb.conf(5) for more information. -u <username> selects information relevant to username only. VERSION
This man page is correct for version 2.2 of the Samba suite. SEE ALSO
smbd(8) and smb.conf(5) AUTHOR
The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed. The original Samba man pages were written by Karl Auer. The man page sources were converted to YODL format (another excellent piece of Open Source software, available at <URL:>) and updated for the Samba 2.0 release by Jeremy Allison. The conversion to DocBook for Samba 2.2 was done by Gerald Carter 19 November 2002 SMBSTATUS(1)
