FTP from NT to NT

By obi_duru ·
Is there a utility one can use to FTP from one NT machine to another (apart from the NT's FTP utility which needs you to configure all the NT's that will take part). If the NT utility will allow continuity (i.e if the link is bad or the transfer times out, the FTP continues from where it stopped)that will be a big advantage.

I use ws_ftp to do just that. It has a nice GUI for human driven transfers and a command-line interface to allow you to setup scheduled /automated jobs.
Commercial product. http://www.ipswitch.com

I have also used TimedFTP. It will transfer files continuously with a timeinterval that user can self decide. Timed FTP is an ecxellent program to transfer for example webcam-pictures to your internet-server or transfer your html-file wich you are configurin all the time. Timed FTP can also determine if the file is changed and it will be uploaded only then. Freeware. http://mikrobitti.fi/~jms/shsoftware/timedftp/index.html

I think you will find that there are a LOT of commercial, shareware, and
freeware products. WS_FTP has been around a long time. We use it to automate a set web site db updates. I would take a look at a set of products and use the one/two that fits your needs the best. To get a range of whats available, goto TUCOWS and check out ftp under NT. http://www.t

Any FTP product is going to require that all the participating machines have either an FTP client or an FTP server.

I'm wondering if you could use Directory Replication to accomplish what you want to do. Like FTP, it would have to be set up initially on each machine but would be automated from that point forward.

Another possibility that wouldn't require much in the way of setup on the target machines might be Robocopy from the NT Server Resource Kit.

Well NT comes with PWS or IIS depending on a server or wrkstn install. You can set them up or the easiest way to set up a ftp server is with Serv-U FTP. Then just use a client like ws-ftp from www.tucows.com or www.ipswitch.com

Thats the easiest way i see. Lemme know

Yes there are several. Firstly you should install IIS 4.0 which is on the nt Option Pack. You will need to install at least SP 3 to enable install. Setup is quite straight forward. A word of warning though. Do not attempt to Install SP 6a over IIS or vice versa. If you are using workstation you will get a lighter version of IIS (Peer web services.) Once you have ftp set up on one machine you can access the FTP area with any FTP Client (Cute FTP or FXP) or even with a web browser NT and IE 4.0 and above.

Hope this helps.
