# 1  

Hi ,

we are writing a shell script to test connection of our destination servers and facing an issue if the destination server doesnt respond. we are using the following command.,
sftp -B /dev/fd/0 <host@servername> << EOF >> file.txt

The above command hangs for 20min and returns the following code,
warning : Connecting to <server> failed : Connection timed out.

here the exit code is zero instead of non-zero. so the script goes to success.

i have tried following options but didnt work for me.
set timeout 10
set -e timeout 10
sftp -o ConnectTimeout=10 <host@servername>

I have gone through the previous posts in this forum but didnt get any useful information.

Please help me to get proper output in case of failures.

Thanks in advance..
