Automatic FTP

By Ken Selfridge ·
I have a Windows NT Server (4.0) that generates application logs every two to three days. I need these files to be automatically FTP'd to a dedicated PC for burning the logs to CD-R.

Is there an easy way to create a script (in the UNIX world, itwould be a "cron" job, but don't know the designation in NT) or other function such that logs would automatically be sent in this way? If you need more specific information as to environment, please post here and I'll respond.

Thanks!


Ken

You could write a batch file to ftp the files, then run it regularly through the task schedular.

I'm sorry - I should have indicated that the NT server has been "hardened", so that the Task Scheduler is not active. The server in question functions as an management console for our firewall servers, and is in effect a "firewall" itself.

Keep those cards and letters coming...

In WinNT there is a program that combines tasks of UNIX's at and cron daemons. Invoke

> at /h

at command prompt and read the instruction.
Of course, it provides less flexibility that cron, but it's quick and easy solution
