you can put this script in cron for automation

Code:
ftp -v -n $FTP_SERVER << EOF | tee $LOGFILE
user $FUSER $FPASS
cd $FILE_LOCATION
dir $FILE_TO_BE_FTPD
quit
EOF
   
grep $FILE_TO_BE_FTPD $LOGFILE
if [ $? -eq 0 ]
 then
  echo "FOUND FILE"
ftp -v -n $FTP_SERVER 
user $FUSER $FPASS
cd $FILE_LOCATION
get $FILE_TO_BE_FTPD
quit
EOF
else
     echo "File not found "
fi

I think the third step is to upload the file to another server, which easily done by command put in ftp.

With jville's code, it should be easy for you now.
