insted of ftp/sftp you are loggfing into the box using keys

and then you can use what ever command you need.

ssh user@host

I have never used keys to get into the box that way before. Most of everything we have on our server as far as keys is encrypted and I have no access to that. In other words, I can not become root on this server!

When you sftp to the target machine, you have to provide a username and password correct?

Instead of using sftp, try the following using the same username and password that you use for sftp:

ssh username@targetmachine
It will prompt you for a password, enter the password for that user.

If you can login with ssh, then read up a ssh-keys tutorial like:
Suso Technology Services -- Web Hosting,Web Design,E-mail Hosting, XEN hosting, Dedicated Servers, Colocation, Web Design and Web Development in Bloomington, Indiana

Then use scp to transfer the files accross without needing to supply username or password.

It allowed me to login but gave a message of :
no xauth data; using fake authentician data for x11 forwarding.
Could not chdir to home directory : No such file or directory
FSUM7358 no HOME directory
This is a test server they are setting up, so its possible everything is not all set yet. I will check with the IT team. This at least gives another direction to explore.

Tried using the script you showed me only using sftp instead of ftp, as ftp will be completely going away on the server shortly. It prompts for password and then continues to hang like before. So either the receiving is not set properly of I still have something missing. This is a direct connect behind a secure firewall. I will not be leaving and going to an outside lan, but rather stay within our own secure lan. It can not be seen from out side our site.

HOST='connecting ip'

user $USER
exit 0
