I realise the point of Perlmonks is to promote perl but wouldn't the user be far better off using rsync?

I won't even go into the dangers of ftp versus ssh's sftp.

      Rsync on a unix box should be able to synce to a windoze ftp or ssh server. As for a windoze client. You'd have to check the Website.

    I know what you mean, point taken.

    This script was primarly built for developing perl skills, there are more then 5 better ways that i can think up right now not using perl to solve this, and security.. well this script was intended to be used on a closed net and our provider of the system i backup does not allow me installing openssh etc.

    Thank you all for the tips and pointers.
