ftp not working but http and https is- are these file sending alternatives?


While the tecchie geniuses at the company that hosts my server are trying to figure out why my ftp has juststopped, i need a temporary work around. I need to send two large files via another protocol to a windows server 2003. Any ideas- i can open any ports - http and https are open. Any info on how to use the relevant protocol/ which clients to use etc would bevery welcome.

If you can make a terminal session to it via microsoft RDP (port 3389) to the 2003 server, you can include your hard disks through the session (its under the local resource option of RDP).  This will give you the ability to transfer files from your hard disk, or flash drive or whatever is connected to your local computer, to the server you are RDPed into.
