How to ftp files securely?



With ftp, username and password are transmitted in clear text. I would like
to send files using ftp programmatically in a secure way. What's the best
way to do this?

Some options:

1. VPN
2. FTP over SSL
3. HTTPS (webdav)
4. Sneakernet

You may want to check out http://www.indyproject.org/KB/ for a free
implementation of SSL and a lot of other Internet protocols that can be used
from .Net.

Don't forget SecureCoPy, or SCP. Grab pscp.exe from here:

http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~s.../download.html

and write a batch file around it. Drop your files onto the batch file,
enter your password, watch the files transmit securely. of course you
need an SSH server on the host you're copying to, but I think I can help
you there as well:

all 100% free software, both in price and in openness.
