Sftp script

I have a file as FILENAME.txt kept in /user/home/smalya . This txt file contains list of file names
ex : 1.txt
2. txt

I want a shell script which will read the file name from this txt file and transfer the files into another server.
actual files (1.txt,2.txt,3.txt) are present in /user/home/data
please help

For this to work there must be ssh keys installed, sftp will not accept a command line password. To work around this you can use expect if it is on your system. Or install ssh keys - howto: ssh-keygen: password-less SSH login

export FILE=/user/home//smalya/FILENAME.txt
while read fname
sftp another_server <<-EOF
   put $fname
done < $FILE
