Re: Upload Files To Other Servers
[In reply to]
Hello, Not really, If anonamous login is allowed via ftp to the server then yes, But mostly it's not so then you couldn't.
Yet there is one alternative, xoom of course allows you to upload files to your storage using their form. If you automate the form submission, then you can do what you want, edit a file store it locally on your server, then transfer it to xoom's servers via cgi protocol. Instead of the traditional ftp (File Transfer Protocol). Do you see what I mean?
There are modules you can look into about automating form submissions, also perl.com will have information on it becuase it's a recipe stight from their book (Perl Cookbook), but I have never gotton into the modules for this, if you view the source of the page, and build a url by putting together all of the form field names, and the hidden values, then all you have to do is print location or print an iframe (An Iframe that's like 1 x 1 pixles) with the proper url, with the file location from your server, and it should work. With a little playing around with it I'm sure you could get it. If it's your first time. It could be a little difficult, and you may want to check into the modules if it suites you more.
P.S. Forgive My Misspellings For Today, I'm in a hurry and pretty tired, thanks.
