RE: cron job ftp script



You could do something with perl quite easilly.  For instance:

#!/usr/bin/perl
use Net::FTP;
$ftp = Net::FTP->new("<ip>");
$ftp->login("<username>","<password>");
$ftp->binary;
$ftp->put("blah.tar.gz");
$ftp->quit;

Subject: cron job ftp script


I have a script that uses .netrc to automate some FTP processes. It works
well when run manually on the command line, but it chokes on the login
when run as the same user from cron. It appears to not be using the .netrc
login info at all. Anyone have an idea how to get around this? If there is
a way to reprogram the shell script to accomplish the same task it can be
done as well.

Thanks!
