I have a number of pdf files that are created throughout the day and stored on our LAN. At night I need those files to be transferred, via FTP, to our Terminal Server. Not knowing the names of the files nor the number, what should the script look like to transfer the new files from the LAN and add them to existing pdfs that are already on the TS? They need to be copied into the same folder each night. Thanks for your help.

It depends on whether the terminal server is on the same "server" as the server where the PDFs are created.  If so, and it is Linux or windows, you can just copy all PDFs from one server directory to the other, with a COPY command.  But if they are not on the same server (i.e. hosting server), then you will have to set up an automatic FTP routine to copy *.PDF from one directory on one server to a new directory on a different server.  Any number of  FTP programs can do this on an automated basis.

Here is a general linkk of relevant programs to get you started of server to server FTP programs --
