Hi,

You may use ftp within a script to transfer files.

To automate ftp within a script, use .netrc file in the user's home directory (the one who will run the script on aa). Run command:

cd

The .netrc file should not be readable by others i.e. use

chmod 400 .netrc

The entry in .netrc should be as below:

machine myftpserver
login remoteusername
password mypassword

myftpserver is the server which is the ftp server where you want to sent the file(s). It is prexfer.event.ibm.com in your case.

remoteusername is the remote user login name on the ftp server. It is xfer in your case.

mypassword is the password of the remote user on the ftp server

for more info about .netrc, please use man netrc

- The script is similar to:

cd /user/dev
ftp prexfer.event.ibm.com < END
cd /db2_database/db2extracts
text
put aa.ixf
END

If the file is binary file, then change text above to binary

Run the script

Sorry, there is typo in the script. Change

ftp prexfer.event.ibm.com < END

to

ftp prexfer.event.ibm.com << END
