Trying to setup a very specific FTP service for office group.
So, our design department is destroying our Exchange server with their insane 60MB PDFs. We'd like to setup an ftp site so that vendors can upload these docs to a folder within the site, but have no READ access to the site (don't want them downloading other vendor proposals).
I'm going to use FtpDrive
on the client side so our design people can use the site like a networked drive.
A few questions:
1) We'd like to have them do this within IE , but have had issues with uploading folders. What is the most simple non-browser free FTP client?
2) We use Maytech
, but have a dreamhost account also. We got Maytech because they have the most robust backend. Is there a tool that helps with backend setup so we could use our cheaper, larger Dreamhost setup?
3) We'd like to give each design employee one FTP account that they could give to their vendors. I've had a lot of problems setting up permissions correctly. This is the biggest problem.
Thanks in advance, I know little about FTP as I haven't really used it since the pre-Napster days....
