Automatic file transfer

I am automating a manual data transfer process ...... I need to transfer files that remote locations generated, those locations have Linux installed and a modem. Those files must be transfered automatically to a central server also with linux, this server is not public, in fact we do not have any public server.

What do i have to do? a FTP server? a script

thanks for the help

crontab - schedule batch job
ftp script - transfer files
gFTP - interface

Hollerith says:

Ftp is the user interface to the Internet standard File Transfer Proto-
col. The program allows a user to transfer files to and from a remote
network site.

The client host with which ftp is to communicate may be specified on the
command line. If this is done, ftp will immediately attempt to establish
a connection to an FTP server on that host; otherwise, ftp will enter its
command interpreter and await instructions from the user.

Machines with GNU/Linux will have the ftp client as standard. Anonymous FTP Servers exist.
Ich möchte mir einen FTP-Server unter SuSE Linux 8.1 Professional aufsetzen.
Zuvor, also unter der SuSE Linux 7.1er-Version hatte Ich noch ProFTPD als
FTP-Server eingerichtet - dieser ist aber nicht mir im Bundle von der

I think that you can create a script which list files in the directory on the remote server

and the file which will contain list of all files... can be used with the command "wget -i file"...
