Question An Auto-Login "ftp" Script

We are running SCO Unix under Unixware 2.1.3 (really old!). I would appreciate if someone could show me the code of a script to automatically "ftp" one or more files to another SCO Unix computer on the nightly basis, then gracefully termninate the ftp session. Thanks for your help.

I'd suggest using rsync (http://samba.anu.edu.au/rsync/)

Much more flexible than ftp. Have used it before with great success replicating WWW Servers.

Use our search function. There must be over a hundred threads about automatic ftp jobs.
