My shell script in SunOS 5.8 ftp data from an external server. I didnt have an issue in it till now. Now that my organization policy does not allow ftp due to security reasons, i have to try ftping over a ssl handshake. Can some one help me what the prerequsits are to do it, and may be some guidance how this should actually be done. This is a daily batch process and I have to accomplish it in my scripts, hence shell script samples (or links to it) are welcome. Thanks in advance.
