Subject Re: Design issue : how to replace ftp
Date Thu, 26 Apr 2007 19:40:16 GMT
Assuming you're leaving open the SSH port (22) You might want to try using
SFTP instead.  It's more secure than FTP.

If you want to access it programmatically, you can do that using Apache
Commons VFS.  There are also some VFS Ant tasks that you can use to manage
your files.

Hope this helps,
