Question regarding file transfer!

Hi friends,

I am looking for a secure and robust file transfer web service. I am handling a sales force which is stationed at different locations and is frequently moving. They need to upload there activity reports frequently to our servers. So I am looking for an easy to use secure and robust file transfer web service which can be used by my sales force for their needs.

Thanks & Warm Regards.

RE: Question regarding file transfer!

When I hear "File Transfer", I think FTP (File Transfer Protocol).

FTP is probably the most mature technology, with the most options on all platforms.

After you configure an FTP server, Konqueror allows you to simply "Add a network folder" to it. Then, it's all drag and drop. Windows will allow you to do the same thing in pretty much the same manner.

In addition to that, pretty much every web-browser has ftp support built into it natively. So, you can upload/download them without even adding a network folder. Also, there are some great FTP plugins for Firefox, like FireFTP that allow for even more features.

And, of course, it lends itself well to shell scripting too.

RE: Question regarding file transfer!

Hi, I recently got a free platform independent file transfer application from Google search engine called . It supports all major file transfer protocols including FTP/S, SFTP and WebDAV/S. AnyClient is available both as a web based service requiring no software installation, and as a downloadable application that you can install locally. Hope this will work out for you.
Good luck!
