Bug ISSUE on SFTP fucntion ,parameter passing!

Hi Everyone!!

Hey i created a SFTP function to FTP the file from unix to Linux.

I need to FTP the 48 files from unix to linux.

#Compose batch file & pass as argument to the scipt.

if [ ${SrcPath} != "D" ]
echo "lcd $SrcPath" >> ${BATCHFILE}

if [ $DstPath != "D" ]
echo "cd $DstPath" >> ${BATCHFILE}

NoofFiles=`echo $Files | grep -c ,`
NoofFiles=`expr ${NoofFiles} + 1`

if [ $NoofFiles -gt 0 ]
while [ $NoofFiles -gt 0 ]
File=`echo $Files | cut -d"," -f${NoofFiles}`
echo "put $File" >> ${BATCHFILE}
NoofFiles=`expr $NoofFiles - 1`

echo "bye" >> ${BATCHFILE}

if [ $Prikeypath != "D" ]
sftp -oIdentityFile=${Prikeypath} -oPubkeyAuthentication=yes -oPasswordAuthentication=no -b ${BATCHFILE} ${Userid}@${IP}
 > ${LOGFILE} >> ${LOGFILE} 2>&1
sftp -oPubkeyAuthentication=yes -oPasswordAuthentication=no -b ${BATCHFILE} ${Userid}@${IP} > ${LOGFILE} >> ${LOGFILE} 2

if [ $? -ne 0 ]
echo "SFTP session failed. Please refer ${LOGFILE} for further details"
echo "SFTP session succeeded."
#rm -f ${LOGFILE}
#rm -f ${BATCHFILE}


This is the fucntion.

The issue is
dosftp <ipadresss)  <User_Name> <Private_Keypath> <Source_Path> <Destination_Path> Abc*.txt,Bcd*.eof,xyz*.eof,crw*.txt

If i excute the fucntion like this,from the source path it's FTP ing only the first 2 files(Abc*.txt,Bcd*.eof)
but i need to ftp all the files(Abc*.txt,Bcd*.eof,xyz*.eof,crw*.txt) ,How i can modify my function to SFTP the n number of parameters in a single execution.

Please advice.

Thanks in Advance.

To keep the forums high quality for all users, please take the time to format your posts correctly.

First of all, use Code Tags when you post any code or data samples so others can easily read your code. You can easily do this by highlighting your code and then clicking on the # in the editing menu. (You can also type code tags [code] and [/code] by hand.)

Second, avoid adding color or different fonts and font size to your posts. Selective use of color to highlight a single word or phrase can be useful at times, but using color, in general, makes the forums harder to read, especially bright colors like red.

Third, be careful when you cut-and-paste, edit any odd characters and make sure all links are working property.

Thank You.
