File Transfer

I’m working in a distributed environment where we need to move files from one host to another over a WAN. This was previously accomplished by streaming bytes over a TCP/IP connection (between hardware encryption units for security purposes). We are now reimplementing this functionality in webMethods (using IS 4.6, TN 4.5.1).

The obvious design here would be to use FTP to accomplish the transfer, but there are some constraints to this approach (such as managing all the necessary OS accounts). So just to be sure I’m not missing anything, is there any other recommended way to move files between servers via webMethods? TIA.

Why not use HTTP to shoot documents between TN instances?
