sending secure files via ftp
Posted on 2006-07-11
I have been asked by my organization to send daily files via ftp to a vendor. I'm totally clueless on where to begin. The vendor is opening up their ftp site for my PCs IP address. Apparently we'll be using PGP encryption and they'll have a key for me.
My questions are:
1. Is it possible to FTP from a Windows 2000 workstation.
2. How do I set up my computer to send FTP files. They suggested secure FTP. Can I just use FileZilla?
3. I am supposed to give the vendor my IP Address. I know my inside IP address is static. How do I determine my IP address to give to the vendor?
4. The sending of files will need to be very secure. Is there anything I need to be made aware of?
