Last Modified: 2010-04-18
I have a Windows2003 server. I need to create a process to run on this server to FTP a file from a different windows server every morning at 6:00am. I have the remote server IP address and a FTP account password.
How do I set up such process on my local Windows2003 server? Do I need any other information of the remote server? The file size is big (2GB).
Please help.
