Perhaps you could change the

ls -1 ...

to something like

find $mFile* -prune ...

We're kind of running low on guessing gas.
Could you possibly elaborate what you're trying and what exactly didn't work?

Here is the FTP error, after changing the FTP script:

Connected to
220 host.local X2 WS_FTP Server 7.0(34062500)
504 unknown security mechanism
504 unknown security mechanism
331 Enter password

200 Transfer mode set to BINARY
mput /name1/name2/name3/file10.txt? 227 Entering Passive Mode (10,25
550 Command STOR failed
221 bye

and here is the script:
DATE=`date +%Y%m%d`
TIME=`date +%H%M%S` 
LOGFILE="process$(date '+%y%m%d')"

# Count files
find $mFile  >> $LOGFILE.log
file_ctr=`egrep -cv '#|^$' /name1/name2/$LOGFILE.log` 
echo "$file_ctr"

# User and host info'

# Upload to ftp  -  ftp.log  - all ftp messages 
while read line
ftp -v -n $HOST > /name1/name2/name4/ftp.log <<EOF 
pass $PASSWD 
cd name11
cd name12
mput $line 
done </name1/name2/$LOGFILE.log

ftp_ctr=`cat /name1/name2/name4/ftp.log | grep 226 | wc -l` 
if [ "$ftp_ctr" = "$file_ctr" ]; then
echo "No Error"
echo "List of transferred files:" >> ./transfer.txt
echo "Error has occured"
echo "List of transferred files:" >> ./error.txt

First of all, use Code Tags when you post any code or data samples so others can easily read your code. You can easily do this by highlighting your code and then clicking on the # in the editing menu. (You can also type code tags [code] and [/code] by hand.)

Second, avoid adding color or different fonts and font size to your posts. Selective use of color to highlight a single word or phrase can be useful at times, but using color, in general, makes the forums harder to read, especially bright colors like red.

Third, be careful when you cut-and-paste, edit any odd characters and make sure all links are working property.

Thank You.

Looks to me that the prompt command is not working. It appears to be prompting you to see if that is the file to transfer. Hence the ? in
200 Transfer mode set to BINARY
mput /name1/name2/name3/file10.txt? 227 Entering Passive Mode (10,25
550 Command STOR failed

It is asking you to respond to the question. After the BINARY line you should get something to the effect

Interactive mode Off

Some subtle changes I would suggest.
Remove "prompt".
Change "mput" to "put". We are only transferring one file in each invocation of ftp.
Because each line in /name1/name2/${LOGFILE}.log is a full pathname we need to extract the filename without the pathname to use for the destination filename (which is going to a different directory name).
Issue a "lcd" such that the ftp starts in the same directory as the source file. You already have "cd" to the destination directory. We can then issue "put filename" without mentioning directory names on the "put" line.

# Upload to ftp  -  ftp.log  - all ftp messages 
while read line
FILENAME="`basename ${line}`"      # Name of file without directory
DIRS="`dirname ${line}`"           # Name of source directory
ftp -v -n $HOST > /name1/name2/name4/ftp.log <<EOF 
user ${FTPUSER}
pass ${PASSWD}
lcd ${DIRS}
cd name11
cd name12
put ${FILENAME} 
done </name1/name2/${LOGFILE}.log
