Central FTP uploading to different users
Posted on 1998-11-25
I operate within an Intranet and I need to get a whole lot of information to users who dial-up using modems thru telephone lines but whose speed is much slower than within our LAN/WAN. They have complained that the download time is far too long, especially the graphics. Is it possible to somehow push these pages to these users for example by automatic, synchronised FTP uploading every night? Is there a program were I can enter many IP addresses (of the remote users) and get it to send these HTML pages from my server to their PC? I know of programs like ByteCatcher and the like but this is not really what I need. This is basically a short term solution until the network and modems are upgraded, but it is imperative that I can make it work. Some pages also have links to zip files and excel spreadsheets. Would such a program also download these files?
Assistance is much appreciated,
