I don't have any specific recommendations, but if that's all (or almost
all) that you'll use the ftp server for, I imagine pretty much anything
will do as it's not going to have to handle any serious load - it'll
either work or it won't.

well an http upload would work, but it'd need some code on the server
(compiled cgi, Java servlet, php script etc.) to receive the file and do
something useful with it, and something on your client machine would
obviously need some code that can talk http and actually do the file
upload. Possibly more trouble than it's worth given that it sounds like
you have the client bit covered (using ftp) already.

Of course the server-side bit using http is likely pretty easy, as I
expect there are lots of free examples of upload scripts on the 'net -
but the client-side may or may not be tricky to either find an example
of or write your own.

I did write my own ftp server in Java a few years back as I needed a
portable one that'd work on various platforms, but I have absolutely no
idea what I did with the code unfortunately :-(
