Is any software in the market if allows you to do the reverse of a FTP client. In the case of an FTP client /clients - many client PULL files from an FTP server.

Is there anything which allows one to PUSH files from a something-server to many clients?

thanks

Well it depends.

You could use SMB (folder sharing)

But I see no way to push files from an internet server to clients with DHCP behind a firewall. ...if you are not microsoft ;-) And even they pull the files.

Well in that case you could mount a folder from each client on the server and push files to that mounted folder via scheduler...

ala

c:\> net use \\client1\share m:
c:\> net use \\client2\share n:
...

Now provided you have setup a shared folder on each client called "share" with r/w permissions the server can easily push files.

It takes a simple batch file with some xcopy commands...

Hmm, then how about a server that has a share that is mounted on on each computer as r/o.

A normal batch file on the client (autostart / autoexec.cmd) could move files in the share to the right folder on the client.

Or you could setup a task on the client that connects to the server's share, copies the files, disconnects the share. Repeats this every 6 hours?
