Unix – How to ftp multiple files using a shell script

ftpunix

I am trying to ftp multiple files from one machine to another using a shell script. Below is my script:

ftp -nv <<EOF
open home.machine.com
user remote monday
binary
mput *.txt
bye
<<EOF

Now, the problem is, it hangs in between, but when I try each and every command on the command prompt. After I execute mput *.txt, it asks for confirmation for each and every file. When I enter yes then it moves on to the next file, and asks again.

Am I missing something?

Best Solution

I tried something like this:

prompt
mput *.txt

The prompt command closed the user interaction, and then it worked properly.
