Hi Experts,

I am getting file values as argument in the format 1.txt,2.txt,3.txt
Loop for all txt_files
 exec procedure sp_book_cnt
If returnStatus=Y
   ftp txtfile
echo "FTP Success"
Else
sleep 60
goto procedure sp_book_cnt until File ftp success or until returnsflag=N            

sp_book_cnt will check for retry cnt, if its >10 it should send status (returnFlag) as N.      

How can i achieve this?

Thanks,
Magento

Check -c option for wget
You can have many different shining FTP downloaders, like curl, ncftp or aria2, or replacements like rcp, or secure replacements like scp or rsync.

Hi Gheist,

Sorry i dont understand ur points on different FTP downloaders. My question is how to handle the ftp count.

Say i send a first book 1.txt to another server via ftp command . If its success i will process next book 2.txt.
If 1.txt fails, i will try reftp the file until its success but only reftp 10 times . If still 10 times fails, it should throw error.

How can i do this in shell scripting.?

Thanks

No mention of uploads khem khem khem

ncftp handles that almost instantly... Just pass it list of files and get the log of output...
other option is to wrap default ftp client with expect (ftp -i is one shot, if it misses it misses)

Other options are sadly for downloads
