Automatically (and silently) FTP a file to me at boot up.
Posted on 2005-05-06
I own several stores. I would like it if when the the PC at a store is first booted up, it will FTP (or otherwise transmit) a file to me, at my home office. I run XP at my office, one store PC also runs XP, and the other store runs 98.
I would like it to be that the user would not see any program starting on the screen, nor would there be any need to shut the program down. It would be ok to have an icon in the system tray, if the program can run that way.
The file in question (if anybody is wondering) is the log of the previous days transactions. I don't want the manager to think that I am "checking up on him", but I do want to be able to remotely retrieve this information, on a daily basis.
Can this be done as a "scheduled task" with some program that I can install on all of the machines in question?
