I am starting up an online storage company by using the ftp protocol. What I need is a software with my logo on it for the client computer to download and run. I need it to be simple for any person to use. And I need it to do two things. I want it to start up and the user puts in their username and password which then communicates with the server to receive their ftp address along with the username and password. I dont want the user to see the ftp address or the username and password. Just by typing in their username and password at the beginning should fetch all the ftp connection info behind the scenes. After they are logged in they can either chooses different files to backup to the site along with being able to set up a time schedule for running auto backups. Also if they choose they can enter into a drag and drop mode much like dragging and dropping onto a usb stick or hard drive. When you minimize the program, it needs to go down into the bottom left hand corner of the start menu into an icon. When it is communicating with the ftp site it needs to have some way to let the user know that it is working. Possibly a flashing icon or something to that nature. Also I forgot to mention that I would like the user to choose if they would like their information to be encrypted. Also on this program if possible I would like the user to see how much space is left on their account and how much more they have to use.
Now for part two of this project, I need a website that is able to communicate with windows server 2008 ftp program. So when a user goes to the site they need to be able to create a user account. After that they have the option to pay for the online space. Once they purchase, I need the site to create a /home directory along with a username and password on the windows 2008 ftp server along with the correct user permissions to be able to read, write, and modify in their own ftp home folder. Also if possible I would like the user to be able to log into their account online and to be able to see how much space they have left and how much has been used.?
If you have anymore questions feel free to ask.

I had a meeting with the company and we decided to change the plans a bit and would like a bid on how much this project would cost. Using a linux ftp server, we would like to only have a website. On this website we would like people to pay a monthly fee for ftp space. We need it where they can sign up and have their account auto created along with an auto created home folder. We need an admin panel as well that will allow us to control everything. Also we would like to make it where users do not need to download any software to use our service. We would like it available web based. I found a website that has the look I wanted for the web based client part. Obviously I do not want users to see or have access to anyone elses files. Here is the site to take a look. [url removed, login to view] We have our own web server that we would put it on. Please get back to me with this when you can. Thanks.
