When you have a problem, try to describe it exactly, thanks. What error message do you get?
# 3  
Thank you for your reply zaxxon.
I didn't get any error and its hanging while executing..
don't know the mistake in the script.

Regards
Rajesh

At which point/command is it hanging?
When you try the commands manually exactly as they are in the script, does this work?
# 5  
after lcd its hanging..
can you please check it..?

rajesh, shouldn't you be using put instead of the get, if you are sending a file across?
