Help with a script to transfer files from Solaris to windows

Hi

Please can you tell me what could be wrong with the following scriptto transfer files from solaris 10 to windows machine:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
HOST=<IP>
USER=administrator
PASSWD=xyz123zyx


/usr/bin/ftp -inv  <<EOF
connect $HOST
user $USER $PASSWD
cd Documents
binary
mput *.sh
bye
EOF

A bit more info might be appreciated, e.g. strange/inadequate/unexpected behaviour or error messages.

does not give me anything at all, strange....
This windows machine is on a domain, does it matter?
I try to use in the line :

USER=\prtg_svr\administrator

but with no luck

The windows machine must be configured as a ftp server which Windows boxes aren't by default.

That doesn't help too much. I don't think above will be a valid user on either system, on top of, on *nix systems, the back slashes if not quoted work a escape chars yielding USER=prtg_svradministrator.
Please approach the problem stepwise:
- does it connect?
- does it log in?
- does it change the directory?
etc. etc.

The first thing to do is to transfer a file using ftp manually from the command line. If that doesn't work then you've got no chance trying to script it.

the windows serveris configured as ftp server
if I run from command prompt ftp -inv <ip address> it does connect, but does not login:
Code:
 ftp -inv 10.100.48.116
Connected to 10.100.48.116.
