Simple Script


My target is to create a subdirectory, which holds certain files -
and I want 2 computers connected to the Internet to automatically transfer the files from one to another on a certain time of the day (say 8:00).

The source computer has a FTP server enabled and configured.

What sort of solution should I use?
How do I even start to write a script that does so?

Thanks alot in advance,

Welcome to LQ.

Get the destination computer to run a "wget" command. You can do it automatically at 8 O'clock using a cron entry.
