Hi,

This 'solution' will grab all the output the ftp session creates, not only the line specified (put file). So this could not be what you are looking for.......

Code:
#!/bin/sh
HOST='80.172.10.255'
USER='ahahahah'
PASSWD='eheheheh'

OUT="$(ftp -n $HOST 2>&1 <<END_SCRIPT
quote USER $USER
quote PASS $PASSWD
put file
quit
END_SCRIPT
)"

echo "Output is: $OUT"

exit 0
Hope this helps.

You may want to look at using lftp instead... it has a simpler syntax for scripting FTP sessions than the standard ftp client and will produce a lot less output (more relevant output).

output=$(lftp -c "put file" -u$USER,$PASSWD)
