FTP script to transfer data from Windows server to Linux server

Guys

I have a Windows 2003 (32 bit) server which receives 3rd party application files into one of its folders.

The files that go into this folder need to be FTP'd out of the Windows directory and into a directory on a Linux server every 20-30 minutes.

Can someone point me in the right direction in terms of the script that needs to be written and how to set this up.

Question: do I run a Windows Scheduled Task to run the script every 20-30 mins?

I have been ftp'ing this data manually via the command prompt on the Windows box but this has been to another Windows box. This requirement is for the data to leave the Windows box and land in a directory on a Linux server.
Thanks

You can do a wget every 30 minutes on Linux box:
 wget --ftp-user ftpuser --ftp-password ftpassword ftp://path/...

To configure every 30 minutes, create a script and a cron job: http://www.thesitewizard.com/general/set-cron-job.shtml
