Hi everybody: I try to backup mpg videos with this script: Code: #!/bin/bash HOST=myip USER=user PASSWD=mypasswd fecha=`date +%d%B%Y` mkdir backup_$fecha cd backup_$fecha ftp -in $HOST<<EOF user $USER $PASSWD binary mget *.mpg quit EOF tar -czf backup_$fecha.tar.gz *.mpg rm -rf *.mpg exit I use cron, and every Friday at 3 p.m. execute this script. But the problem it´s that only copy 3 files. And I receive this message: Code: [[email protected] I think the problem is "Passive mode refused", is there someone that knows how to solve this problem. Because I think that the script it´s making all right. In other words the problem is at the remote server. Greetings and thanks!!!
