Batch file for ftp’ing files…

Today I came across a requirement where users needed to ftp files time and again. So ftp’ing again and again is not a very good option. I wrote a small batch file for the same. Just sharing the same over here. I created a folder ftp in C drive and a file get_file.bat
Contents of get_file.bat are:


set /p file_name=Enter the name of the file you want to ftp:
echo oracle>c:\ftp\param.cfg
echo oracle123>>c:\ftp\param.cfg
echo cd /home/oracle>>c:\ftp\param.cfg
echo lcd c:\ftp>>c:\ftp\param.cfg
bin
get %file_name%
ftp -s:param.cfg 127.0.0.1

It will create a file param.cfg having all the things like username, password and command to get the file in the same folder (c:\ftp). Then we invoke ftp with -s option with specifying the file param.cfg. It will ask the user to enter the file name and ftp the file from server to c:\ftp
