I'm wondering how easily it would be to achieve the following.
- I want to create a Drupal site where users have a small "file area" to upload files.
- I would like to be able to take those files and upload them to another server (using FTP, HTTP posts, or XMLRPC).
- It would be also nice to get the "remote server" directory listing.
I obviously think this can be easily achieved by ftp; but can I tell to the FTP manager to use the username/password couple of the Drupal user? How can I hide those information to the end user?
What I have in mind is the implementation in Drupal of the Dropbox service, where the Drupal site would be the Dropbox provider.
Any ideas on where to get started ?
