File copy client-server [not FTP]

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I've found a lot of 3d but not for my own...

I must develop a software for my company that copy a folder over network (differential backup, xcopy like 'd be perfect) from a client to server. But there are some project limitations:

1. No shared folders can be used (on client and server);

2. Client users have restricted permissions (not admin rights);

3. No FTP.

In this scenario, I would like to develop a "server controller backup" software with AutoIt...:

- The server version (installed on server) asks each specified client for a backup;

- The client version (installed on client) reply with the last backup date;

- The server start backup if necessary.

How can I start "talking" the server and the client software without FTP in my LAN? Socket? Port? And how do I send a folder (or file)?

Thanks for your help ;)

You are really going to write your own backup software? Why?

There are so many products available ready to use. The best I have ever used is TSM (IBM Tivoli Storage Manager).

Backup needs to be fast, reliable, complete ... So nothing I would like to write on my own.
