problem in lftp

$lftp -u user,passwd IPaddress
--> mirror source file destination path

I am trying to transfer source file to remote deatination path.I am doing it in command line.
Acctually source file will get transfered to remote destination path but the output will be showing something else and it will be in loop for certain time depending on the size of the source file.

I tried to redirect the o/p to some file but when I check the file nthing will be there

Any help?

Thanks in advance

Hi do the following step by step

# ftp IP address
# username
# password

Then to transfer use the commands mput
or to fetch use mget

If you have a problem with the commands use

# man ftp
