Question NCFTP bash script

Hi, i'm a newbie of scripting and urgently need to do a script witch can upload a file and by erasing the old one on the server :

i have a webcam on a computer behind a proxy the webcam give me every 15 secondes a new image. my image is called pic.jpg every 15 sec pic.jpg is erased by the new one.

i want to auto upload it with a script that i will auto execute with crontab.
so ? anyone know how to do a bash script witch can connect the my ftp server with login password and upload the picture. ? and at all times must erase the file (replace by the old one by the new one).


Thanks in advance

NB : and know if i can use proxy authentification by ncftp ? becuase i have to login to pass throught it.

I found the solution just fill the variables in the begin of the script.
# comment are in french (nervermind them)

ftp -i <<*fin*
echo -----------------------
echo Démarrage de l'upload.
echo -----------------------
open $ADR
put /var/www/html/webcam/$IMAGE
echo ------------------------------
echo ------------------------------
