    There is no "best" file transfer method. Variables include the OS of the sending and receiving sides, the connection or networking protocols between the two sides, the network route between them, the appliances along the route between them, the bandwidth of the connection, the security requirements of the transfer, the size of the file and possibly others. The first method to consider is simple FTP. -- Tom

    Possibly even something simple like a USB drive - depending on what is being transferred, and to where...

    Just to add on what my Great Collegues have said.I have experienced such problems that I think cgrass is struggling with to solve. May be I have little knowledge in Networking but I think FTP softwares can be use tackle this issue at some instances.To some extent he wanted to send file( of very large capacity) via email and this kind of attachments are usually failed to be attached. So, He wanted if there could be any remedy to help him/her go about this. And I think, Apart from the genuine reasons given above, I know many softwares that are suitable for this. One of them are Teamviewer which can also be used for Remote Desktop Assistance, Netmeeting or Video Conferencing( Apart from File transfer). The othe one is DropBox which can be use to share/transfer files irrespective of their capacity.

    Good points on you need more information. What I have is a large file transfer of client statements for an estimate of 200,000 pdfs (average size 30 kb) that would be transferred monthly. A smaller daily file of 2,000 will be transferred. The connectivity could be a SFTP site or NDM connection. The statement vendor is using Connect Enterprise as the file transfer software. What I don't know is the band width we have for this transfer. (I could find this out from the Network guys.) What I don't know is the NDM connection as I have no experience with this. Is it better or am I better off with the SFTP? OR is there something else I may want to consider?

    Is that a transfer of 200,000 .PDFs each month or 200,000 transfers per month of .PDFs? In the former, it's essentially similar to a 6GB transfer. The network becomes very busy for one day during the month. In the latter, it's a bunch of 30k transfers spread over a month. Network activity is smoothed out over the whole period. -- Tom
