Get/forward solution via ftp w/ NT4 Wks

By jim_rau ·
I have two separate networks (one production and one lab/testing). On the lab side I have a box running an ftp server that I need to send files to. I have to keep this lab isolated from the production network.

So my thought was to build an NT Workstation with two 100Base-T cards. One card is connected to the lab network and one to the production network. I put this together and I can get a file from an ftp server on the production side and send it to the lab side.

What I would really liketo do is turn this box into a "relay". So an application can send a file to this box via ftp and when a file appears this box sends it to the lab box. I would not do anything (once this is up and running) to make it happen, it just would.

The winning answer(s) will not only include a software solution but information on where to get it and how to set it up (at least high level info).

Thanks to everyone in advance for your thoughts ...

Get/forward solution via ftp w/ NT4 Wks

The easiest way would be to use the windows task scheduler service. You could then create a batch file that would check to see if a file is in the directory, and if it is ftp it to the other box. Schedule the batch file to fire off every 5 or 10 minutes, and you should be all set. You would have a few minute lag between when the file gets to the box and the time it would FTP to the other location, but if that is acceptable this would work. You could use just about any scripting language you mayknow. If you need some help on what the script would look like let me know.

This doesn't address the first part of the "relay" (sending a file to the PC). Thanks for the time though ...
