I need help regarding downloading the files from FTP Server to the Local Server.

for downloading i need to use the FTP In batch Mode capability and I have a txt file with with all the files which needs to be downloaded.

file.txt

cap/media/101/101.mp4
cap/media/102/102.mp4
cap/media/103/103.mp4
cap/media/104/104.mp4
cap/media/105/105.mp4
cap/media/106/106.mp4 

cap/media/101 is the folder structure inside the FTP user root and 101.mp4 is the file.

so the folder structure for 1000 of file is same and the mp4 is located as listed.

so i need a bash script which can run in Batch mode capability and download all the files automatically to the local Storage.

I have created that script but it is not working, hopefully someone can give me some hints,

###########################
HOST="ftp.remote.com"
USER="media"
PASSWORD="test"
FILE="/tmp/list.txt"
###########################



 cd /tmp/
while read p; do 
pt=$(dirname $p);
h="/"
pth=$pt$h
mxf=$(basename $p);
#echo $pth;
#echo $mxf; 
ftp -n -v >> /tmp/filetransfer.log 2>&1 $HOST <<EOF
binary
user $USER $PASSWORD
prompt
lcd /tmp/media
cd $pth
mget $mxf
quit
EOF
done < /tmp/list.txt

and that is the output of the FTP Can you please help me here , I am not understanding what excatly i am doing wrong.

Follow upto the comments this should probably work:

HOST="ftp.remote.com"
USER="media"
PASSWORD="test"
FILE=`cat /tmp/list.txt`
cd /tmp/localstorage

ftp -n -v >> /tmp/ftptransfer.log 2>&1 $HOST <<END_SCRIPT
ascii
user $USER $PASSWORD
prompt
mget $FILE
quit
END_SCRIPT
