Pulling a file from a windows computer


I’m trying to create a PHP script that can be stored on a LAMP server and called by a networked windows computer. The computer would give the PHP script the location of a file, which would then be pulled by the PHP script onto the LAMP server. Is this possible? If so, what kinds of permisions do I need to enable to let it work?

I am sorry if this is a newbie question or if I’m too vague, I’m new to file transfers and PHP in general.

Since PHP can execute system commands you can do pretty much anything you like.

How large is the file?

The files are fairly large. A small one would be around 100 mb and could be up to a gig or two.
