progress bar

i am trying to write a script where in it will connect to remote servers and execute remote scripts to fetch some data and ftp it back to a main server. i would like to add a script where it will show some sort of status bar until such time that the expected files have been recieved.

something like:

Getting information on remote servers .................. done!

the "." will not stop until the script find those files (more than 1 file) and print the word "done!" when all of them have been received.

can someone give me an idea?

echo "Some servers you are trying to fetch data is not responding!"
echo "Try again later!"
exit 1

sleep 1

echo " done!" ;


echo "Fetching data "
rexec remote_server -l user command
