hello everyone, i have developed a shell script to connect through ftp to a remote server. I was able to get the ftp working and automatically transfer files. Now what i am trying to do is download files from the remote server and then compare those files to the files located in a folder on my local drive. If the files are not equal i want it to output an error to a file or if they are equal show that the operation completed successfully. Anyone have any ideas or can point me in the right direction?
