The sample script for ftp was very helpful to me.
I was having trouble running a script with an ftp in it from unix to mainframe host. It kept using the wrong user name, so this script excerpt shows what I did:
#**********************************************************
# Below is the ftp script that goes into Prod.
# (1) Do not use the -n option so that it will use the .netrc file
# (2) Do not use a user statement because login is automatic
#**********************************************************
ftp -iv << EOF
open hostname
quote site UNIT=WORK RECFM=FB LRECL=80 BLKSIZE=18960
ascii
put unixfilename MVS.FILE.NAME
close
bye
EOF
#**********************************************************
# Below is the test version of the same ftp.
# To test from xterm or telnet unix session:
# (1) Include the ftp option -n so it will NOT use the .netrc file
# (2) Add a user line right after the open statement, like this:
# user tsoid password
# (3) run the script from xterm or telnet unix session:
# ./edw_ftp.scr boxname dev
#**********************************************************
ftp -inv << EOF
open hostname
user mytsoid mytsopassword
quote site UNIT=WORK RECFM=FB LRECL=80 BLKSIZE=18960
ascii
put unixfilename MVS.FILE.NAME
close
bye
EOF

hi,

I used the same syntax but got an error at '<<' The code sample is as below:

36 for arg in "$@"
37 do
38 FILE=$arg
39
40 ftp -niv<<EOF
41 open $HOST
42 user $USER $PASSWD
43 cd $HOSTDIR
44 binary
45 get $FILE$DT$EXT
46 close
47 bye
48 EOF
49 done

Any advise?

Thanks,
Kim

machine <server name> login <service Account> password <pwd>

result=`ftp -v <<**
open $MACHINE
put file.txt $DESTINATION/filename.dat
bye
**`
value=`echo "$result" |grep "226 Transfer complete" |wc -l`

if [ $value = 1 ]
