How do I read files on another computer?

For my project I need to automatically read files from another computer via its server. Like this psuedocode :-

[u]AT HOME[/u] check() log in in ftp go to url if new files read files write files to local sleep 30 mins run check()

I have full access on both windows machines and simply want to fetch any new created files from a security camera and record them at home . If possible I would like to have the security machine perhaps notify the home machine that a new file has been written but I don't know how to attack this? Can u help?

[u]AT SHOP[/u] checknew() if new file saved Callhome() sleep 1 min run checknew()

Callhome() establish ftp go to file address transfer file

Can u help?

Best not use and Arduino for that task, use on the target system a program like wget or some other ftp client which supports automatic retrieving.


Save your photos to your dropbox directly. Any computer (PC or Mac) you install dropbox on will automatically synchronize the files. Additionally the client will give toaster pop-ups when files are added.

I learned from my dad that free often means you don't pay in money but in some other way and the money is paid by someone else... :)
