I am looking for an FTP client that will allow me to do the following
- Include a GUI for setting up a number of FTP connections
- Support FTPS
- Run unattended on Windows Server 2008
- Retry failed transactions
- Support email
- Support custom scripts
I need to pull files from a few different servers and there are certain calculations that need to be done depending on which server the files come from.
I've looked at SmartFTP and it looks like pretty much what I need except I can't get it to run as a Windows Scheduled Task (I currently have some support threads open in their forum).
I've also looked at a few other FTP clients (Filezilla, RoboFTP, and AutoFTP (you can find the Windows 7 BSOD in this one!)) that haven't had the capabilities I'm looking for.
Right now, I'm looking at WS_FTP and its scripting capabilities. It appears I can create a script to run as a scheduled task, but I can't add the script to a file transfer task.
Does anyone have suggestions on how I can do post-transfer processing on the files or better yet how to integrate scripting into the file transfer task?
I'm also open to other suggestions for FTP clients as well if you have them!
If I can't find a suitable FTP client, custom scripting will just have to do the trick.
