Question FTP file transfers

I have a photographic web-site and would like to set up an FTP programme to enable clients to transfer large photograpic files (30MB TIFF) maybe upto 15 at a time.

I have no idea how to go about setting this up, any help please.

Thanks

Yea you can transfer very large files with a yahoo mailbox. If you want direct upload to your server we need more info on the server. There are many cgi routines for free and for money which allow an interface to easliy upload files to a photo routine or just store the images on the server. If you want direct ftp to your server then you need a server which supports user ftp. sadly you will have to give your password to all your clients for login and hope they don't mess with your site. Unless your server will allow you two ftp logins to the same account.
I would just have clients send me images via e-mail its much safer. Plus yahoo will scan all your images for virus free.
