Programming :: Unable To Use SFTP File Upload Bash Script

Oct 7, 2010

upload a file to a business partner of ours in another country. Currently they have an SFTP server set up for us that I am using to download a daily generated file from a previous requirement. I use a bash script to download it since its fairly simple.


sftp username@address/ /home/user/filedirectory > /var/log/joblog

(removed private info) To satisfy the new requirement I have been trying to write something similar to this;


sftp /home/user/filedirectory/ username@address:/remotedirectory/

sftps manual page only gives a hint about using a batchfile, however i still cannot get it to work. Does anyone know another way? Or if you can even suggest another method or application? It seems like a bit of a cop out you can EASILY download using the sftp command but can't upload.

EDIT - forgot to mention I have already got keyless entry set up using ssh keys.

Ubuntu :: Detect A Completed Sftp Upload?

Mar 22, 2010

I'm writing a file handler script that monitors (via a cron job) a directory that is an openssh sftp target for new files. When it detects a new file, it moves it, does an scp to another system, and sends an email. The problem I have is that I can't figure out a way to verify that the sftp upload is complete before I start manipulating the file.

Ubuntu :: Sftp Force Permissions On Upload?

Mar 17, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Using sftp, is there any way to force particular file permissions upon upload? I want the permissions on all files uploaded via sftp to be 664.

I've searched around and cannot find an answer. Many people ask similar questions and many responses recommend using umask, but as far as I understand it, umask is just a bit mask--it cannot be used to set permissions.

Software :: Fax .g3 File Unreadable / Unable To Upload The .g3 File As It Is An "invalid Attachment"?

Feb 6, 2011

I have been trying to get my message modem to read .g3 files under ubuntu (now 10.04) for over a year now, and have tried absolutely every application I can find to no avail.The output is always garbage.Every application tried gives the same result, but the fax is perfect on Windows, but I don't have a Windows machine any more.

I am unable to upload the .g3 file as it is an "invalid attachment" but have saved it to url.I have (hopefully) attached the resultant output from gimp, which is exactly the same with tkusr and efax. The fax is the weekly Debt collection agency touting for business (no, I don't owe them any money - yet)

I believe they all use a common file, something like g3topbm or g3topdf.If I try g2topbm on the command line: every second line has an error e.g: g3topbm: bad code word at row 202, col 5 (len 14 code 0x32), skipping to EOL

The .g3 files are created by a USR message modem which stores the files for later download ('cos the computer gets switched off at night.)

General :: Automating SFTP In Bash With Password?

Jul 13, 2010

I wrote a script ages ago to automate an FTP transfer. This was easy as within the script you can specify the password with password <whatever>. Now I am wanting to do a similar thing with SFTP (SSH). I know that SFTP works differently and I cannot specify the password within the script - what do I need to do on the server I am connecting to to either "trust" the host I am connecting from or to somehow specify the password for "sftp user@some_host"? It's IP address will always be the same.

Programming :: Bash File Names With Spaces?

Jul 24, 2010

I have a laptop that I am in through SSH. The laptop does not have an Xwindow system so I am using the program fbi to open an image on my laptop screen from my SSH connection:

fbi -T 8 picture.jpg #this opens the image on the laptops tty8 terminal

I've found that making a for loop does not work with files that contain a space in the name. Something to due with a bug that they call a "feature" that stops the first variable at the first whitespace.

Using a "while" loop is not exactly what i require either seeing as I want to be able to view each image in the directory on screen and tag it accordingly, before it jumps off to the next image, and I'm not sure how to add a pause to a while loop.

How do I make a Bash script and loop Variables handle files like "files that contain spaces.jpg"

Programming :: Bash There Will Be Empty Lines At The End Of The File?

Mar 26, 2011

Using awk I pull the first field of a random line from my datafile.myvar1=`awk -F" " 'NR=='$randline' {printf "%s", $1}' myfileThis works fine. The problem is there will be empty lines at the end of the file. Rather than using awkto filter out blank lines I would like to figure this out first.So I test $myvar1 for a blank string after setting $randline to one that I know is blank:test -z "$myvar1" && echo "true" || echo "false"But, this returns "false"? So the string is not zero length. Why? It's a tab-separated file. Is awk storing the tab with the $1 field or something.This is where I get headache. I try to echo my variable to see what it looks like.

echo "$myvar1"
outputs: nothing
echo "My variable is [$myvar1]"
outputs: [y variable is [

Why is the closing bracket at the beginning? What character could be stored in $myvar1 that would do such a thing and how did it get there?

Programming :: Bash To Monitor IP Addresses In A Txt File?

Oct 13, 2010

This code uses ping to check connectivity to a remote location and logs it to a .html file which is then stylized by css..


#! /bin/bash
path="$HOME/Desktop/IP_Monitor" #Path to write out files
ALT="0" #For styling alternative row


I need to add a feature such that instead of hardcoding the ip address .. it takes them from a list and makes new files for each ip address for logging.. And also when log files are completed , They should be compressed using tar. How should i go about adding both these.. This is my first bash script.

Programming :: BASH Read File Once Then Return To Top?

Aug 8, 2010

I have a script that reads part of a line, delimited between the first and second intended part by a colon. Then it "chops" the part after the colon, which are words offset by commas (counting them beforehand so as to catch every word in the string's second part), like this:




single script that parses/breaks both parts of a line like this "COLORS.JPG:red,orange,yellow,green;blue,indigo,violet," so that the two parts, separated into single words (or two and three words, sometimes with spaces) can be used as single-line annotations and written to JPEG files using Exiv2. So far, I haven't been able to come up with a script that does this without one part of the total string(usually that part after the colon) becoming the first word in the second array. In other words, I look for this:


[ ]red
[ ]orange
[ ]yellow


Or vice-versa (ie, the second array winds up as a single-line "member" of the first). I think it's because I'm using a single while read loop to read the text file in which the filenames and substrings happen to be. If there's some way of reading a file once and going back to the beginning to read it again in another while loop, I haven't found it.

Programming :: Bash - Read File Without Whitespace?

Mar 14, 2011

I am struggling with Bash scripting at the moment (I can't seem how anyone can write scripts with this language!!!) I have a need at home to have a cron job execute daily to lookup my downloads.txt file, read each url (per line) and download content from that url. Then that entry needs to be removed (well I keep all urls in memory and clear the file afterwards). If an error occurred during the download process, then the url is written to a downloads.err file. I got all the above working except for properly reading the url from the text file without including newline characters. I am using the following to read:

while read url; do
--Do whatever here--
done < downloads.txt

How can I get it not to let the url variable have newline characters?

Programming :: Bash Script To Locate A Specific File?

Jun 14, 2010

I'm new to bash scripting and I've searched around the forums and Internet for this but haven't had any luck. I've found similar things but not what I need. What I need to do is write a simple script that uses what the user inputs to locate and display where a file is. I would prefer to use locate instead of find since I know that the person I am writing this for has locate on her machine (my mom, who is just beginning with Linux).I'm writing the script to make things easier for her while she learns In this particular part of the script I would like to be able to have the script prompt to enter the file she is searching for, read the her input and then display for her where the file is. I realize it would in most cases be much simpler just to teach her how to use locate, but she is very impatient and this is just a part of the script I will be writing, but I can't figure out how to do this.
