Our VB6 instrument control program automatically displays data for 1 to 8 selected controllers displayed in separate MDI forms. Data are updated once each minute and can optionally be saved to individual files on disk corresponding to each controller (MDI form). We would also like to have the ability to optionally save these files to an intra/internet location.
The project must meet the following needs:
User login to FTP site with site/login information retained.
Directory listing of FTP site.
Input of filename either by selecting existing file from directory or inputting new filename.
Automatic file upload on timer request (similar to current file save feature).
Ability to halt uploading.
Error handling to prevent system interruption due to connection/uploading problems.
