Questions about using FILE adapter to connect to other systems


in my PI scenario i am facing a problem in usage of the file adapter.

Our PI system is installed on a UNIX server. The target system for upload an download files is a WINDOWS system. The software installed on the WINDOWS system is only able to export the needed file lokal on the WINDOWS server.

Between UNIX systems i can connect a together used fileshare folder. But this won´t help me in my UNIX <> WINDOWS scenario.

I thougt on using an FTP server on the WIDNOWS system to make the PI able to connect via the FTP adapter but this works fine for one or two systems. I don´t think that this ist the best solution when connection to a lot WINDOWS systems, but mayby i am wrong.

Actually i use UC4 to copy the files between the two systems.

Any ideas how to deal generally with such scenarios?

Many thanks
