Secure FTP File Uploader Applet

    I'm currently working on a web site that will be used for transferring
    large files. The users my company deals with typically upload files of
    around 20-100MB but sometimes up to 700MB or a whole CD image. While a
    standard SFTP client would be a good solution these users do not have
    administrator right and so cannot install any software.

    I thought a good solution to this would be to write an applet that
    would use FTP over SSH to securly upload files to our server. I know
    that with applets there is a "sandbox" effect with reguards to hard
    drive access etc but this problem can be solved by digitally signing
    the applet.

    Unfortunatly my Java is very rusty so if anyone could give me tips,
    source code examples or point me in the right direction that would be
    great.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    You can find an applet that does just what you describe at
    http://www.unlimitedftp.ca/uftp/webdemo/uftpsecure/index.jsp. If you
    just need an API to do SSH in Java, there is a free one available at
    http://www.jcraft.com/jsch/ Hope that helps.

    Cheers,
