Windows FTP Filename retreival


Need someone to create a windows .bat file that does the following:

1) Takes the following parameters as input:

- ftp_address

- ftp_username

- ftp_password

- ftp_folder

- filename_ext

- program_to_execute.


[url removed, login to view] -ftp_address [url removed, login to view] -ftp_username amituser -ftp_password abc123 -ftp_folder /usr/home/ -filename_ext txt -program_to_execute [url removed, login to view]

2) Logs into that ftp address with given user/pw.

3) gets the filename that has the extention For example [url removed, login to view] and stores that filename in a variable $FILENAME.

4) Will then call another .bat file passing that was retreived from step 3 as a parameter and calling the program_to_execute For example [url removed, login to view] -filename $FILENAME


This script will login to an ftp site, get the filename with the required extention and call another script using that filename. That is it!

* Budget is $45 USD, do not bid over that amount please.
