I am fairly new to Linux and Networking and would appreciate some advice on
good ways to tackle the following.

I have access to a dedicated linux server which I want to open up to the
hosting of a few web sites for some charitable organisations. I can give
them free hosting but cannot give direct FTP access. I intend to tackle this

job every minute to check which files have changed and then use SCP to
transfer them securely to the webserver or alternatively use an FTP client
on the webserver to fetch the files from the FTP server.

find a program called (i think the program is called 'aps' it's
written by Dmitry Rozmanov) download it and configure it for your MS
Proxy/ISA Firewall. it might require the python intepreter, download
the python intepreter if you DON'T already have it. be patient,
everything will eventually work for you once you've read all the
