I know little or next to nothing about this topic. I know how to use 
Fetch. OK, so I'm a dumbBo, big deal. I'm also in need of trying to 
send a randomly named 1kb text file to an anonymous FTP upload  folder 
from a commercially sold standalone app. I want to use this same 
anonymous FTP upload folder to have a product fulfillment app running 
from my place of business batch process these files, remove them from 
the upload folder, and send out reciprocal unlock keys for feature 
upgrades.

My biggest problem was finding a server that still uses or makes 
available these anonymous FTP upload folders. Turns out you can host 
your own remote servers at ServerBeach.com with 2000 gig transfer rate 
per month. So now I'm off to learn all about that. This was my answer 
to having my commercial apps e-mail me with the user's own e-mail 
client.

I believe that Rev already has native functions to handle these 
anonymous folder FTP uploads. This was the only way I could figure out 
how to get a text file from anywhere in the world to a single location 
that I could use another app to make use of through automation.  I 
imagine that there is a CGI method using the post function but I would 
need that FTP folder for other needs anyway so I just decided to use 
that FTP approach.
