    Ftp on web site


    Can anyone recommend the best solution for having an FTP service implemented on your web site so users can upload and download very large files (over a gig)?

    Thanks

    There are atleast a couple of ways to do this :

    1) Use a Java applet that can be embedded, configured and customized within a website.

    2) Use an API to communicate to the FTP server from your website code. For example an asp.net website communicating to an FTP server from 'code-behind' or JSP/Apache based website communicating to an FTP server via Java.

    There are various APIs available to to this, search the following on Google :

    -) JSCAPE Secure FTP Applet
    -) JSCAPE Secure FTP Factory
