How archive the older than 30 day files to another unix server

I need to archive the older than 30 day file to another uinx server.I have wrote the below uinx script.
Code:
for LOOK_DIR in /TempFiles
do
     for FILE in `find ${LOOK_DIR} -mtime -30 -exec ls {} \;`
     do
          echo ${FILE} >> file_list ## This file will have the list of files copied and removed
     done
done
#*********************************************************#
# Copy the files from share drive to Unix server #
#*********************************************************#
ArchFiles_ftp_put
ArchFiles_ftp_put()
{
     /usr/bin/ftp -v -n << EOF > ${FTP_LOG_FILE}
     open ${ARCH_SERVER}
     quote USER ${ARCH_USERID}
     quote PASS ${ARCH_PASSWORD}
     passive
     ascii
     prompt off
     cd ${REMOTE_DIR}
     lcd ${DATA_DIR}
     mput ${FILE}
     bye
     EOF
     EOF
}

When I verify the file list form above script, I am getting file directory along with the file name,
Can you please suggest me the how can I select only older than 30 day files

So your problem is to cut off the path from the filename?

Edit:
I just saw you are using -30. Why not try +30? Did you write that script?

I asked you via PM to use code tags, sent a video with a guide and added a mod comment. You got another PM with a guide.

That's what you asked for.

Define the variable after writing cut off names to the file:
Code:
...
echo ${FILE##*/} >> file_list ## This file will have the list of files copied and removed
FILE=${FILE##*/}
...

The Unix philosophy is a computer operating system idea that means the operating system provides a set of basic tools that perform a limited, well-defined function, a unified filesystem as the main method of communication, and a shell scripting and command language to combine modular tools to perform more complex workflows.
