where are ftp error messages logged?
I've written a shell script that creates a file, then uploads it to my
ISP's server via (command-line) ftp.
After getting it to work from the (bash) command-line, I put it in
/etc/ppp/ip-up.d, so it would update this file every time my ppp link
When run automatically (for example I run "pon"), it manages to write
the file on my (local) system, but the (scripted) ftp session fails,
and the file is not uploaded.
Here is a snippet of my script which contains the code for the ftp
# setup networking defaults
/bin/cp /home/someuser/somefile/ ~/.netrc
# begin ftp session to upload file
/usr/bin/ftp -v -i home.myisp.com <<EOI
put /var/www/somefilehere www/somefilethere
Why would this work from the (bash) command line, but not from
/etc/init.d/ip-up.d? BTW, I've tried with #!/bin/sh and
