Hello,
I'm using Linux Fedora core -6.
Using one shell script I need to download one file from TFTP server.
Script should take IP address and file name with path.
ex. downloadFile.sh 10.10.10.10 /opt/config/file.txt

Can any body help me in writing such script.. specially tftp commands to use in script.

Thanks

Give this one a try.
#!/bin/sh
 
if [ "$#" != "2" ]; then
  echo "usage: $(basename $0) <tftp-server> <remote-file-name>"
  exit 1
fi
 
if echo "get $2 $(basename $2)" | tftp $1 2>&1 | grep -qi "Error code"; then
  exit 1
fi
 
exit 0

Just out of interest: Why is a fully functional script just graded with a B??
