Hi,

First thing I noticed: You forgot the $ in 2 places:
Code:

ncftp -u "$FTPU" -p "$FTPP" $FTPS<<EOF
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the replay druun

Actually by mistake it was deleted in post.
In my script it is there.

Please can you tell me some other commands which help in data transfer to remote desktop

Hi,

It works on my side if I recreate your script. Can you post your full script and use code tags. I.e.: [code]script goes here[/code]

You might want to try using ftp instead of ncftp. Try the following:
Code:

#!/bin/bash

BAK="/opt/DBbackups"
NOW=$(date +"%d-%m-%Y")

FTPU="user"
FTPP="password"
FTPS="ipnumber"

### UPLOADING BACKUP FILES TO FTP SERVER ###
ftp -n $FTPS <<EOF
user $FTPU $FTPP
prompt
mkdir $NOW
cd $NOW
lcd $BAK
mput *
quit
EOF

Hope this helps.

Thanks druuna. it working but giving error that
Interactive mode off. Local directory now /opt/Dbbackups

Can you give any suggestion to make this with out any errors.
But i am able to get the Data to the remote server.

Thanks a lot

Hi,

This is not an error. The prompt command turns off interactive mode, and this fact is echoed to screen.

BTW: You're welcome :)
