Flash and FTP integration - Macromedia Flash Data Integration

Morning fellow developers, I'm working on a new site and we were going to dev an ind. FTP program, but after some more consideration, we came across the cross-browser and OS compatibility. We want to be able to upload over 100+ files (if needed) to a server along with desc + keywords.

    Default Flash and FTP integration

    Morning fellow developers,
    I'm working on a new site and we were going to dev an ind. FTP program, but
    after some more consideration, we came across the cross-browser and OS
    compatibility. We want to be able to upload over 100+ files (if needed) to a
    server along with desc + keywords.

    I see that Flash 8 has the neccessary tools to handle file uploading, but my
    question is, can we have it act as a Stand alone FTP program so that we can
    utilize the fastest user upload, or will we be confined to the settings in the
    server INI settings.. IE MAX_UPLOAD_TIME, MAX_FILESIZE, etc...

    If possible we want to avoid using the HTTP upload as it is noticeably
    slower. So if we can use flash to utilize user BW to upload, then that would be
    ideal.

    Any foresight is of course appreciated it. Just doing some research right now.
    Thanks for taking the time to read.

    I believe the security limits of Flash for file upload are the same as html. A
    script cannot specify a file on the user's machine unless the user has selected
    the file through a form or Flash FileReference class.
