I would like to
get large file over sftp. I execute following commands:
kopparberg:dev marek$ sftp -P 678 marek@server marek@server's password: Connected to server. sftp> cd backup sftp> get database.gz /Volumes/www/backup/ Fetching /backup/database.gz to /Volumes/www/backup/database.gz 9% 44MB 1.4MB/s 05:06 ETA
Because it follows some more commands, I decided to write a bash script and I put sftp commands in batchfile.
Bash file looks like this:
#!/bin/bash #get backup file sftp -P 678 -o "BatchMode no" -b batchfile.sftp marek@server #following commands #...
In bacthfile.sftp are just three steps:
cd backup get database.gz /Volumes/www/backup/ quit
The problem is that I do not see progress when I run the bash file. Is there any rational explanation behind?
