Default Copy file from one server to another server

Hi Friends,

This question is'nt really about .Net but I hope .Net or something else related to it have solution for this.

I have some set of files i need to deploy from one server to another
remote server programatically. Is it possible to do so.
All ur opinions are accepted.
It is possible for me to manually load the set of files on an FTP
an paste it on the desired directory on the target server. But I donot want any manual intervention.

Just take an example I am in China (server IP say 192.487.5.155) and want to deploy files on server in Australia (server IP say is it possible..
Any technology related to this pls mention.

Thanks in advance.

A lot of this answer depends on your connectivity to the other server.

If your only means of connecting to the server is FTP then you'll need some way to automate the FTP process.
- You can call the windows FTP application with a script that FTPs what you need. (You could even have a process that automates the creation of the script so it's flexible.)
- There are libraries that you can use in a .NET application that do FTP operations.
- You could use other third party tools that use FTP as well. I use BeyondCompare which can do FTP and is VERY good at synchronizing web applications over either a direct file connection or using FTP.

If you can connect to the server using the file system (if you are connected to it over a VPN for example) then it's just a matter of copying the files.
