Yes Thanks for the info :

But it is kind of critical in touching those files in my environment

I will post my code here , can you please let me know what went wrong here :

#!/bin/sh
echo " Please Enter the FTP Server Address :"
read FTP_SRVR
echo "Please Enter the User id :"
read FTP_USR
echo "Please enter the FTP Password :"
read FTP_PWD
ifile="/home/app/ins/seven/rem/"
ofile="/home/app/ins/six/ddf"
ftp <<EOF
open $FTP_SRVR
user $FTP_USR
pass $FTP_PWD
ascii
cd $ifile
lcd "$ofile"
mget *.*
bye
EOF
