on unix, ftp to windows...logging in

I am ftp'ing to one of our network drives to pick up a tar file. In the script, it does the ftp, but doesn't pick up the username and password. Do I need to script these a certain way so it knows this is input?

ftp machinename.com

Use -inv option


FTP_SERVER is the source server
FTP_USER ftp userid
FTP_PSWD is passowrd
FTP_LOG is log file to capture results from the ftp

ftp -inv ${FTP_SERVER} << EOF_FTP >> ${FTP_LOG}
user ${FTP_USER} ${FTP_PSWD}
cd ${FTP_DIR}
mget ${FTP_FILE}

Thank you. I was looking at the -n option with QUOTE. I'll try this.

I am working with korn shell and when I put the actual commands into a function, I get an error:
Syntax error at line 43 : `<' is not matched.

Is this due to the '{' characters? I tried putting " in place around the variables but got the same error.

What needs to be changed?

Is there any space after '<' character ?

Something like,

ftp<< EOF

where EOF should be without any preceding space(s)

should be something like


Could you please check that ?
