I need to FTP files on a nightly and weekly basis to a FTP site.  The FTP site is password protected.  Can I use Windows builtin FTP to automate this at midnight every night?  Anyone got any other free programs they would recommend to do this.  Thanks,

Brad

[b]All of the following was taken from http://aplawrence.com/Unixart/scripting_ftp.html...[/b]

There are actually numerous ways to do that. If your script is complex, I'd use use Perl Net::FTP or Kermit.

You can also use "here" files fpr simple cases:

 HOST=xxx
 FTPUSER=xxx
 FTPPASSWORD=xxx
 ftp -n $HOST <<-EOF
 user $FTPUSER $FTPPASSWORD
 cd /wherever
 bin
 prompt off
 mget '*'
 bye
 EOF
