    How to Automate FTP from Client to Server


    Hello, I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I run a template based website for 100 auto repair shops in the United States. Each of my clients uses one of 5 shop software systems to manage their business, such as AllData, Mitchell, etc. These systems all back up my clients' data each night, such as customer information, work orders, etc.

    What I need is a way to install and/or configure my clients' computers that will upload their backup file to my server where I can then process it.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Would this work for you?
    Do a search for Auto FTP Manager. It might be what you're looking for.

    Thanks, since posting this thread a friend told me about VNC which seems to be pretty popular. Have you heard of VNC and is it similar or the same as auto ftp manager?

    Managed File Transfer solutions were actually made for these problems, and it is often referred to as FTP Replacement. Being able to 'manage' file transfers means you can send automatically between applications on timed or event triggered schedules or you can send files of any size as regular emails, integrating with Outlook or other email clients. One provider is Thru, Inc
