Need to send multiple files during ftp

Hi guys...

I'm working on #!/bin/sh script in a Solaris 7 box that should send several files over to another machine via FTP. Here's what the script looks like:

# This script will send the daily MSP customer counts
# to the Crystal Reports server located at
cd /archive/data/CustCnt
ftp -n << !
user anonymous
put CustCnt.*

A quick ls of my /archive/data/CustCnt directory shows that there are a few files that "should" be FTP'd:

ROOT@fcivrc: pwd
ROOT@fcivrc: ls

The script successfully connects to the remote server, but it only sends the first file ( The rest of the files never make it??????

I tried using ftp -i and that did not work. Any ideas as to why only the forst file is being FTP'd??

mput CustCnt.*

The ftp mput command should be used for multiple transfers.
