I use Windows 7 machine and Putty to connect to UNIX servers. I am required to FTP certain files from those server to my local windows machine. For this purpose I use a FTP client like FileZilla or WinSCP.
However, I want to create a script , that would:
- Connect to unix server from my windows machine.
- FTP file from certain directories to windows machine.
- Terminate the connection after the FTP download is complete.
- This should occur periodically.
I have installed rsync 3.0 and cygwin. When I enter the following command:
rsync -e ssh user@host:/remote_directory .
It asks me:
Enter Securid PASSCODE:.
and I enter the password for the same, but I get the error:
sh: rsync: not found. rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [Receiver] rsync error: remote command not found (code 127) at /home/lapo/package/rsync-3.0.9-1/src/rsync-3.0.9/io.c(605) [Receiver=3.0.9]
Please help me in understanding why I face this problem.
