We have an FTP server that is running on a DMZ system. In the past we have created FTP.exe
based scripts that move files from the FTP server to a share on the network somewhere. In order to do this we have created reduced privledge accounts that have liimted access and explicitly put the username and password in the script.
We can no longer do this. We need some way of automating the ftp transfer without specifiying credentials. One of the security guys mentioned certificates as a possilbe solution.
Can some one please provide me with instructions on going about this?
FTP server is a proprietary server
Both Boxes are windows 2003
I am using windows ftp.exe
but I can change that.
Thanks in advance.
