Use expect, I don't think you can do this kind of stuff just with
shell-skripts.Perl and other scripting languages will probably help too

Here's a small perl-script
#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use Net::FTP



# new object
# ftp login
$ftp->login($user, $password);

# change directory

# get the file

#quit the session

I'm not quite sure if this really works, but a simular programm should

Best regards


1. A simple Samba/YP share question.. (fwd)

Hello All,

I'm a samba novice ;(

Saw your "detailed" responses to another newbie questions so I thought I
give you a shout :)

Here is my setup:

I've got 2 Linux boxes.  One is running Ypserv and handles the
authentication, the other is  a 486  33mhz running ypbind(slave) and it
is my printserver.  The print server is also running the latest samba
release as a daemon (smbd -D).

It has two printers attached via parallel ports and each is shared
service..  I know this b/c when I do *smbclient -L "myhostname"* , they
come up as shared clients.

So each authenticated user can actually mount their " \" directory..
They don't actually have accts on the printserver(don't have the disk

I've got 10 NT 4.0 boxes which need to print to these shared printers..

However, printing only occurs when I "physically" mount the home
directory via "\\hostname\home_dir".

I want samba to offer the network printers as a share device to each
authenticated user automatically.

Should be transparent to the user..

How do I do this?

Thanks in advance..
