I want to ftp the file in linux from windows server. After getting file in linux server i want to check the file size with windows(source) server. If the file size are same with linux then i want to erase the windows file remotely from linux server.
Can you please help me how can i write a scripts to check
file size with Win server and erase the same.
I wouldn't rely on filesize, different filesystems might report different sizes. What you're probably wanting is MD5 sum checks.. but I don't know of a script or have not written one, that would take the fun out of learning to write one yourself..
