    I need to send files from various local directories to various ftp locations externally. I have spent half a day looking at Cerberus but can’t find any way to do this. Can you give me any indications…

    Are you trying to use Cerberus FTP Server as some kind of scheduling FTP client?

    Cerberus does not currently have a built-in scheduler that could look at local directories and execute tasks on a regular basis.

    The current event system relies on server events to determine when rules are triggered. Cerberus could respond to a file being uploaded to the server and then execute a batch file to FTP that file to another server, but it can’t scan local folders on a regular schedule. All events are triggered in response to a server event, like a file upload or download through Cerberus.

    Examples:

    Our next major release will include a more generic scheduler that should be able to accomplish what you appear to be look for.

    Hi Serin, I have the same requirement as this original poster. We are running 8.0. Is this functionality now available?

    Hello Richard,

    It’s not available yet. You can use CURL for Windows, or WinSCP has a command line for sending files. There are also a few other command line clients you can try with Cerberus.

    We hope to add time-based scheduling for version 9.0 which should be released late December early January.

    Hello Richard,

    Just some clarification. Time-based event scheduling is available in the current 8.0 release under the Event Manager using Scheduled Tasks.

    There’s no native SFTP send capability built into Cerberus, but you can always use a third-party command line client like CURL with Cerberus to achieve this now. See this example:
