ok you have an ftp server with the files that need to be backed up and you are wanting the client to connect via ftp and get the files and put them somewhere local.




The best way I can think of is to use ftpfs

your script would simply mount the ftp server like this

cd /mnt/ftpfs/ftpserver


now at this point the folder structure of the ftp server appears to be a local folder and you have cd 'd into it so you can cp whatever you want like this

cp -R pathonserver/myfiles/* /local/backup/


ain't this great

yeee haw

In response to your email,

Windows Stuff......



Yes you can do ftp with win 2000.

Right click on my computer, select manage

expand tree at bottom at Services and Applications

expand tree at Internet Information Services


Right click on FTP File Databank

Select New

Select Virtual Directory

the wizard will run


put in a name for the share folder


setup the path to your files

Set read and or write permissions

after the share is built, right click it and goto the Permissions wizard to set advanced permissions if you want.


Click Services in the IIS tree,

on the right side in the view pane, right click FTP Publishing Service

Select Properties

Setup the Startup option, Logging options, and failure recovery options.

You can start and stop the service by right clicking FTP File Databank if you are starting it manually.

If none of this stuff exists on your system, put the disk in and install it, it does not install in the default installation.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Linux stuff........



In response to the ftpfs problem


You do not have it?


Get it, and install it.


If you have problems installing it search for ftpfs on this forum.


If that don't help post again.


It's a very simple to use program like it shows above.

simply cd into the ftp site, it can't get any easier than that
