before you ftp, you may run a remote command via ssh:

ssh user@remotesys "df -k"

then you may capture the out put and based on results, ftp to transfer files.

Hi Omarfarid,
Is there any way that system should not ask for password again and again, because i have to use this statement in loop. Sorry I am not Unix person.
