Questions about using FILE adapter to connect to other systems


in my PI scenario i am facing a problem in usage of the file adapter.

Our PI system is installed on a UNIX server. The target system for upload an download files is a WINDOWS system. The software installed on the WINDOWS system is only able to export the needed file lokal on the WINDOWS server.

Between UNIX systems i can connect a together used fileshare folder. But this won´t help me in my UNIX <> WINDOWS scenario.

I thougt on using an FTP server on the WIDNOWS system to make the PI able to connect via the FTP adapter but this works fine for one or two systems. I don´t think that this ist the best solution when connection to a lot WINDOWS systems, but mayby i am wrong.

Actually i use UC4 to copy the files between the two systems.

Any ideas how to deal generally with such scenarios?

Many thanks

    Why dont you try to use UNIX Script to copy the files, i feel scripts right option to go.

    Even though if you map Unix and Windows OS to read the files, in the long run the design will put you in trouble. Means it requires constant support. Better you go with unix script as per the above suggestion.
