Problem with SFTP script

Hi All,

I can log in properly with my sftp handshake with the script, but can not get it to execute the lines of code for get commands within the script. Is there anything special with SFTP we need to do to make this work. I have went and looked on the message board but did not find anything quite specific to this.

Here is all I am trying to do(login id x'ed & addr changed )
sftp xxxxx@
   get rec1.dat
   get sfsum.dat

It recognizes nothing after the sftp xxx.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

You must use a "here script" in your script sh...

ftp -n  << EOF
open  "your ip"
quote user "your user" 
quote pass "your pass"
get your file
