Default File transfer between servers.

I know that cross server communication is possible by using Remoting, that a remoting client can access the objects on another server which will be a remoting host.

My question is, can this functionality be extended to actually transfer files between the two servers? Kinda like an alternative to using FTP.

Does anybody have any working knowledge of this?

Thanks,

Default

It certainly can. Read your file into a stream which you can then convert into a byte array. Pass this byte array to a method on the remote class and then change the bytes back into a file stream on the remote system. You could also consider using the gzip compression to optimize the call across the wire.
