batch file grabs remote files

So i would like a batch file that will allow a computer to connect to a remote computer grab the continence of a file folder and disconnect every 6 hours, was hoping to use robocopy for the grab.
would like to encrypt the data over the pipeline and i do not want to set up a VPN. however port forwarding would be acceptable.
what are my options? and what steps will i need to take to set this up at each site?

You can use a scheduled task that runs robocopy every 6 hours.
If you are on Active Directory, you can setup a GPP User Preference Scheduled Task to deploy across the site.

yes i am aware of windows task scheduler. no i do not have active directory on in my domain, the remote pc is currently the only pc in another town, and it is using a different web provider. it is a backup sight..
does robocopy use a port that differs from windows file copy?
if i can simply have a port open to use the "Netuse" command that would be handy, however the syntax for the Netuse command i have a little trouble with.
primary sight is using a domain, however the remote pc is merely a trust sight....

Take a look at watch directory.

watch directory looks neat, but that does not answer my over all question, it does monitor an ftp and allow for immediate transfer, however i want to setup either a FTPS or a step by step of how to set up active directory  to work over the cloud, at this point of time i am willing to consider an IP tunnelling solution!
