Default Problems with FTP autologin


SUSE 10.1, ISPCOnfig 2.2.6

I am writing a script to make a backup of my web-folders...

When i try to make an automated ftp transfer I'm asked for password.... ?

I'm using a file with the commands:

ftp < autoftp
File: autoftp

open ftpserver.dk
put *.*
Then i get this:

web1:/backup # ftp < autoftp
Connected to ftpserver.dk.
220 ProFTPD 1.3.0 Server (ProFTPD Default Installation) []
Name (ftpserver.dk:root): 331 Password required for user.
If i enter the password the files are transmitted as it should.

I have tried it on windows XP

Same command:
ftp -i:autoftp
working perfect.

Please help me...

Thumbs up

Hi Falko...

I found a solution..

I used a ".netrc" file in the ROOT home-dir

Not the best solution, but it works.
