Is it possible to copy files to my Linux machine from another Linux machine automatically with FTP? By "automatically," I mean that FTP would need to handle submitting a login/password combination, as well as copy files, on its own.
Both machines run Red Hat 5.1. I want to get, for example, the file
/root/file from the second Linux machine onto my machine and put it under
/var/tmp without entering any login/password manually.
I don’t have
expect on my machine, and I don't want to use SSH authentication.
If this can't be done automatically by FTP, please suggest an alternate solution, such as a Python script.
