Dear all,
I dont understand the following assignment statement in my Unix shell script. I mean, i dont know what values are being sent to the variable FTP_SERVER on my script, though i kinda understood the variable may consisit of user_id, password and host of the FTP server. Any help is greatly appricated.

FTP_SERVER=`grep "login orauser password" ${HOME}/.netrc | grep ramsevr.com | cut -d" " -f2`

ftp $FTP_SERVER <<EOF
binary
cd ${DEST_DIRECTORY}
put $ftp_file $TRANSFER_FILE_NAME
quit
EOF

Also, what would be the syntax when we call FTP with user_id and password along with the HOST in Unix shell script.

This has NOTHING to do with Oracle!

FTP_SERVER=`grep "login orauser password" ${HOME}/.netrc | grep ramsevr.com | cut -d" " -f2`
echo $FTP_SERVER
# display contents of variable

Yes, thats great idea on echo ing the value of the variable. But unfortunately i dont have access to the Unix box of my production server and so, i could not try this. Hence i would be really greatful if i get advised in words by experts like you.

Neither do we have access.
So what magic do you expect/desire from us?

& you do not have a test/development box?
