I am trying to set up transactional replication between 2 servers that can only see each other via IP address and are in different domains.

I am trying to use FTP to do this but I am having trouble finding any information on how to do this?

Does anyone have a guide on how to do this as I am a novice on this subject

Thanks

Thanks but this seems to suggest that the initial snapshot will only be transferred via FTP?

The most important part is that the transactional replication via FTP - is this possible?

Thanks for your help so far.

I'm in the process of reading that article. Would I be better moving to 2005 [which is a possibility] i.e. would this scenario be easier to implement/fix by using SQL 2005?

I have read the above article.

We already have this architecture set up. The question we are trying to address is how to FTP the transactional replication from the internal network via FTP to the DMZ
