Application will transfer files from one web server to another using a web page interface. Should be able to input the local directory that you want to transfer from on Web Server 1 and set the local directory to transfer to on Web Server 2. This should be a server to server transfer with the need to transfer locally first. The interface should allow you to filter files to send by file type, date or matching text in filename. Should also have a drop down to select from a list of available servers that have the capability to run the application. Server information will be populated from an xml or text file (No DB). Should provide some basic progress status information and a report after completion.
Assume that you have permission on both source and destination webservers. Transfer speed and reliability are a factor. Please explain the technology you will use in your solution (web service, ftp, http, etc) and if you have different options based on speed, reliability and price provide those too. Also, explain the required components to run the application. Decision will be made based on best design approach (cost, performance, simplicity, etc.) provided.
