LOL, stranger things has happened since.....
So they contacted the External website provider and SMS platform provider for something like I did.
Well, then that Company just called me right back and enquired on how it worked, and why a company would not use a free, perfectly working tool was beyond them.
And they even offered to give me their FTP access to expand the tool!
LOL I think the IT executive will get a heart attack if they get the little tool i made right back from their service provider, this time even with a price tag....

So gentlemen, has anyone here worked with FTP?

Just remember passwords as sent in plaintext so it is not secure.
It is extremely easy to automate with batch scripts  FTP - s:script mysite.com
I've seen routines to send directly from within your programs as from Don Dickinson.
If a web site gets hacked it is very possible they used FTP with the same password.

I used FTP for years, but switched to SFTP. 
If you go this route you need to setup an SFTP server and use an SFTP client
or use something like sockettools for secure routines to access the SFTP server.

Well lets see what they come up with...and then go down that route.
I still dont think IT will give me that kind of access although they have similar functionality in some divisions.
