I need a program that Can't Post

I am creating a Web site with Front Page2000 and want to have a folder that will allow people to upload to me files that are 1.5Mg to 3Mg in size. I think I need a script cgi perl using anonymous FTP. I would also like to see if it is possible to have theses uploaded files automatically downloaded from the Web site to my home server 24/7 or on a timer basis (once every hour etc.) Lastly can I have some kind of log that shows me when and who dropped off the file (e-mail address or something). I think FTP maybe the way to go because of the size of the files but maybe simple uploading software using the browser may due. The key is simplicity and reliability. I just want to have them click the folder and up comes a dialog box saying where is the file located you want to upload. Maybe a password could be used for my Downloading purposes or for whomever I chose to give the rights to.

Why don't you use a multipart form that submits to a perl script? I don't think anonymous FTP is the way to go for the ease of use.
