Right now we have a script that uses the FTP mget command to download all the files in a specific location. After after verifying the files have successfully downloaded we run a ftp delete command to delete each file that was downloaded. We noticed that each ftp delete is creating a new connection and I was wondering if it is possible to delete each file in one connection?
I'm a bit of a unix n00b so be gentle! I need to use ftp to download some files. I have the ftp running in a shell script which had been working perfectly last week. I downloaded around 400 files before it broke on friday.
Now whenever I try to run the script, it starts to download files and then stops arbitrarily in the middle of the first mget.
