So the file is called ftp.txt and is stored in c:\ftpfolder on machine id 10.10.10.10, Username & password is test & test

I want to ftp the file to c:\ftpdestination on machine 10.10.10.11, Username & password is test & test

Whats the best way to do this......I need step by step instruction please.

add this to the file called send.txt and put it into c:\ftpfolder

open 10.10.10.11
user test test
put "c:\ftpfolder\ftp.txt"
close
bye


put this command on your scheduler and start every 30 min


ftp.exe -nvi -s:"c:\ftpfolder\send.txt"

ok....let me recap for you..

I have this saved as ftp.txt in c:\ftpfolder

open 10.202.1.74
user ccusack password
put "c:\ftpfolder\ftp.txt"
close
bye

I then have a bat file called ftp.bat saved in c:\ftpfolder with the follwoing command saved in it

ftp.exe -nvi -s:"c:\ftpfolder\ftp.txt

I then called my scheduler in windows control panel and selected the bat file from c:\ftpfolder\ftp.bat to run.

I want my files to be dropped in c:\ftpto

Am i close?
