I would like to FTP the contents of a directory, but I can't seem to find the right way to use a wildcard. It seems like this would be a common thing to do; is my whole approach wrong?
The command is
ftp -s:"C:\Scripts\ftp01" ftpserver.domain.com
The script that is called is below. Updated per billinkc.
username password ascii cd "/destinationfolder" lcd "C:\Backup" mput *.bak close quit
The script starts, no files are copied and the FTP session remains open.
230 User username Logged in Successfully ftp> ascii 200 TYPE Command OK A ftp> cd "/destinationfolder" 250 Directory successfully changed to "/destinationfolder" ftp> lcd "C:\Backup" Local directory now C:\Backup. ftp> mput *.bak mput 9829980.bak? close mput 6406766.bak? quit ftp> ftp>
I needed to add the flag to suppress the PROMPT command:
ftp -i -s:"C:\Scripts\ftp01" ftpserver.domain.com
