    Unhappy Simple FTP Upload in C (In backround)

    Guys.. I've looked everywhere.. But I simply can't find a way to program in C to let it upload just 1 file to a FTP server. I don't need any GUI or anything. Just so it does it every 5 minutes in the backround without me even knowing it.

    Thanks in advance!

    We're not all guys.

    >I've looked everywhere..
    I doubt that.

    It would be nice to know your compiler and OS. Platform-dependent and non-standard problems generally require that information.

    >Thanks in advance!

    I think saying "Ladies and gentlemen" is kinda... silly?

    There's a good way to do that, learn arbitrary FTP commands and use normal socket connection

    You could use curl or do it yourself by learning sockets and study how the FTP protocol works.

    Actually I use Wininet for that but I just thought that would be too easy...
