Bug Multiple FTP.


I'm trying to create a loop to ftp files from different servers.
The script i'm using to ftp a file from one server is as follows, and i'm scratching my head how to make this a loop that will do ftp from different servers.

FILE_NAME="ULOG.`date +"%m%d%y"`"
ftp -nv <<EOF
open $HOST
cd /opt/tuxedo/logs/d2d_2
mv ULOG.`date +"%m%d%y"` ULOG.T$i.`date +"%m%d%y"`

[Modified the part of script which i actually got from our forum.]

Here i'm renaming the transferred file so as to differentiate it from the other log file.

My friend gave me a idea like create a file which contains all the other server's credentials and make the script to read that file and so that it makes ftp while the loop is running, but i could not able to catch up how to implement that, even he too Smilie

So if any of you guys have any idea on how to implement this loop would be a great help for me.

Thank you in advance.

With Best Regards,
Bhargav Kesavan.

you can make a file like :


in the script:

while read LINE
host=$(echo "$LINE" | awk -F";" '{print $1}')
user=$(echo "$LINE" | awk -F";" '{print $2}')
pass=$(echo "$LINE" | awk -F";" '{print $3}')
echo "host is $host"
echo "user is $user"
echo "pass is $pass"
## do whatever you want on each host 

done < myfile

If you install lftp, you can ftp files to and from different servers in parallel.
