We have been using Core FTP successfully for years, mainly due to it's great interface and scripting capabilities. We have a business partner with which we do EDI Purchase Orders. After writing a program which put our PO data into an acceptable format for them, it's simply a matter of the Windows Taks Scheduler and Core FTP to get the data out to them. Wonderful program, and highly recommended!
