Does anyone know of a reasonably priced Windows based FTP solution that meets the following requirements?
1) Provides email notifications when a file is uploaded to multiple email addresses.
2) Has a web-based client so that the end user will not need an FTP client on their end.

    Accepted Solution

    The solution could be:
    1 - A regular FTP server
    2 - A Web based FTP applet with redirect after upload
    3 - A simple email PHP script called by the applet (on redirect).

    For #2, you can check out JFileUpload:

    For #3, you have a PHP email sample at:

    And for #1, you can use any FTP server: PUREFTPd, Titan FTP server ...

    Great advice!  I was looking at canned solutions that are very exprensive - this should do the trick nicely!
