Question Automated FTP from Unix to Active Directory Server

Automated Unix to Windows Active Directory FTP

I have done many automated FTP scripts using the following logic:

===============================

echo "Starting the FTP transfer..."
{ echo "
open 192.168.1.100
user username password
ascii
put textfile.txt
close "
} | ftp -i -n -v > ftptransfer.log

===============================


But now i need to log into an FTP site on a Windows Active Directory server. The username that I need to pass to the script has a domain name and a backslash in front of it: "AD\username". I have tried escaping the backslash (AD\\username) and using various quoting combinations, but I cannot get the script to pass the username as AD\username. It usually gets sent as ADusername, without the backslash, which does not work.

Any ideas?

FYI

Doing it this way is working for me now:


Quote:
HOST=192.168.1.100
USER='AD\\username'
PASSWD='pa$$w0rd'


echo "Starting the internal FTP transfer..."
ftp -n $HOST <<EOF
quote USER $USER
quote PASS $PASSWD
ascii
prompt off
put $FILE
quit
EOF
Cheers!
