Sending file from OSC to POS


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am trying to integrate OSC to my POS Software and I have some questions.


I have a PHP file that looks for orders, grabs them and makes an XML file in a Yahoo Store order format (that is the format that my POS software reads) and puts the XML order files in a directory of the webserver where my OSC store resides.


I will use a cron job to do this every hour of the working day from 10 am to 8 pm.



How do I transfer the file from my webserver to my store computer?

I know that I could use cURL if both were web servers, but my store computer is not a sever is just a client using a paid ISP to connect to the net. My computer uses Windows 2000.


Then I need to do the reverse. I want to get the changing stock numbers, new products and price changes from my POS software database and send them to my OSC store. I will use XML as well to format the data.



How do I transfer the file from my computer to the webserver?


I guess the answer to one question will work for both (I am hoping)...

I am thinking that using FTP will work but I don?t have a static IP address in my store computer to automate the process...


Thanks in advance for your help...
