Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting FTP files from different directory from remote server to one directory in local Post 302582485 by dassv on Friday 16th of December 2011 05:55:55 AM
the FTP script i have is
Code:
ftp -ni 2>$RUNNUM.log <<! 
       open $REMOTESERVER
       user $USERID $TPPWD
       cd $REMOTEDIR
       mget *.xml
       quit
!

with the above I can get the files from one directory, but my directory structure is as below
Code:
REMOTEDIR= /home/sales
with in sales I can have many subfolders like
/home/sales/Jan
/home/sales/feb
/home/sales/march
and even those folders can have subfolders like /home/sales/Jan/abc

I want to do a recursive search in the remote directory and look for .xml files from all the subfolders inside sales folder and ftp those xml files to my local machine.

ftpconfig(1M)						  System Administration Commands					     ftpconfig(1M)

NAME
ftpconfig - set up anonymous FTP SYNOPSIS
ftpconfig [ftpdir] ftpconfig -d ftpdir DESCRIPTION
The ftpconfig script is executed by the super user to set up anonymous FTP. Anonymous FTP allows users to remotely log on to the FTP server by specifying the user name ftp or anonymous and the user's email address as password. The anonymous users are logged on to the FTP Server and given access to a restricted file area with its own file system root. See chroot(2). The FTP area has its own minimal system files. This command will copy and set up all the components needed to operate an anonymous FTP server, including creating the ftp user account, creating device nodes, copying /usr/lib files, and copying timezone data. The passwd and group files set up have been stripped down to prevent malicious users from finding login names on the server. The anonymous file area will be placed under ftpdir. If the ftp user account already exists, then the current FTP area is used, and the system files in it are updated. All other files are left untouched. This command should be run to update the anonymous FTP area's configuration whenever a system patch is installed, or the system is upgraded. OPTIONS
-d Create a new or update an existing ftpdir without creating or updating the ftp user account. Use this option when creating guest FTP user accounts. OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: ftpdir The absolute pathname of the directory under which the anonymous FTP area is set up. EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion 1 Improper usage of the command 2 Command failed ATTRIBUTES
