Currently, I am trying to do a automated/batched/scripted copy of a
directory tree and all files in it from one system to another. I do not know
in advance what the files are called, so i will have to be using wildcards
like *. Due to security restrictions which are enforced by other parties
which I am unable to influence, the only available connection method to me
between these systems is by ftp.
Currently I seem to be facing two issues.
The first is that, as far as i can tell, ftp seems to be unable to copy
subdirectorys. Is there a way to make ftp copy subdirectorys as well, or is
there an enhanced ftp client available which is able to do this?
The second issue is that, when i use ftp using the mput/mget * command, ftp
seems to want a manual confirmation of each file i am trying to copy. This
makes it unpractical for automated/scripted purposes. Is there a way around
All suggestions are more than welcome.
