ftp server/ftp settings

i am trying to create an ftp site that is public facing. I want users to be able to upload files on this site and once the upload completes i want to file to disappear so the user doesn't see it. Either the file is hidden or transferred to another folder that is not publicly accessible. I prefer to use linux but will use windows if i have to. Please let me know how to do this.

Although I haven't played with them, vsftpd has the options anon_umask and file_open_mode that look like they might do the trick for what you want.

man vsftpd.conf for more help

Other ftp daemons probably have similar options.

There is a slight difference between not being able to see it and not being able to read it.
