Dear all

I am still bit new in shell script area.I am writing down a shell script which I guess somewhere wrong so please kindly correct it. I would be greatful for that.

What I actually want from this shell script is that it will move all the files one by one to another server which can be windows or sun solaris server. Here I have implemented autossh between the two servers.

What actually this shell script must do is first 'file' variable will have the first file name then I try to make a infinite while loop, in which it will cut the third word which come out from the successful ping command. If the value of var is alive then transfer one file to another server, then bring back that file to same server so that they can be compare.If the
output of compare is null then come out of while loop or sleep for 60 second before ping command can be use again.


My intention of making this script is while transfering a file from serverA to serverB if the network broke down for a while say half an hour or so then it will test through the ping command if the ping command say servername is alive then transfer that file again during which network broke down. In this way it will transfer all the files from serverA to serverB


#! /bin/sh

exec < /girish/server # server file will contain only ip address of the other server
read IP

for file in `ls -1`
do

while true
do

var=`ping $IP | cut -d " " -f3`
if [ $var = "alive" ]
then

echo "lcd /export/home/user1 \n cd /girish \n mput $file \n bye" | sftp -B 131072 -v $IP 1>sftp1.log 2>sftp2.log
grep -i Uploading sftp1.log >>/girish/output1
grep -i transfer sftp2.log >>/girish/output2

echo "lcd /amit \n cd /girish \n mget $file \n bye" | sftp -B 131072 -v $IP 1>sftp3.log 2>sftp4.log
grep -i Uploading sftp3.log >>/girish/output3
grep -i transfer sftp4.log >>/girish/output4

var1=`cmp /export/home/user1/$file /amit/$file`

if [ -z var1 ]
then
break
else
sleep 60
fi

else
sleep 60
fi

done ( for closing while loop )

Now I correct this script which is working fine. But still I am facing one problem which I am going to discuss now.
The problem is when I sftp some files (suppose there is 10 files I have to transfer through sftp) from one server
to another. During sftp if suppose network goes down then the process get hang and it does not transfer further files.
But if network goes down during comparing the files then only that file didnot get transfer and it will sftp other 9 files.

One strange thing also find that if suppose during transfer of files network goes down, if the network goes up within
5 min of goes down then it will sftp all the files. But if network goes up after five minutes say 10 min. then either
process get hang or sftp all the files execpt one during which network goes down.

I guess, I have to use trap command if the network goes down during transfer of files through sftp command. so that my
shell program should not hang. Could any body tell me how to use trap command so that my shell script won't get hang
