FTP data transfer

greenspun.com : LUSENET : SQL Server Database Administration : One Thread

Dear Eric, I need to set a system or strategies that will fulfills the needs of constantly loading a database from another (over LAN) using FTP technology. I'm wondering if you can advise on how to go about that.

Thanks for your help.
