i am searching for a software like turboftp, it allows me to setup sheduled tasks and upload some folder to my ftp folder.

Important is, it must be free.

I have a lot of files in this folder, so i just need to upload *.pdf files.

If some one have an idea for a batch file, let me know.

That only fires the GUI, it doesn't actually send or receive any files once the GUI is opened, so that doesn't help much. – mfinni Oct 12 '10 at 17:40
