Depends a bit on the max filesize and number of files. You can do a HTTP POST 
request, using a simple upload script (numerous examples of those to be found 
on the web). Of course, the traffic for that is larger since it will be 
base64 encoded. On the plus side, you don't need local user accounts on the 
ftp server, while still having full control over where the files end up.

This can get tedious if you have multiple small files, or filesizes in the 
order >100M.

Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
