Dear Concerns,

I have backup script which TAR the data, makes one copy on local hardisk and
then FTP to another machine.
Last few days i m facing problem with it. The cron job only makes the copy
automatically on local disk but
doesnot automatically FTP to another machine.

I ran the script manually, the script runs successfully.

For trouble shooting i displayed the output in some file and shown this
error:

Cron Entry is :
*/5 * * * * /opt/bin/ftp.sh 2> /tmp/error_log

"/opt/bin/ftp.sh: line 3: ftp: command not found"

Please help me out of this problem.


Regards,
