At my office, we get lots of incoming files. They need to be saved on a PC on a local network, and they need to be uploaded to a remote server.

Instead of making the staff go through 2 steps, what i want is to write a PHP script that will 1) save the file to the remote server, and then 2) save it to a specific location on the network PC.

or maybe a compromise, where after the file is uploaded to the remote hosted server, a dialogue box appears asking the user to save the file locally to their PC, preferably with the path spelled out so the user saves the file to the right folder.

the good news is i can use the php script to determine 1) if the folder and file exists already, and if not, i can create a folder with the right name, and then upload the file with the right name

the bad news is, once a client emails this document, we need to *also* save it to a PC on the local network, where the folder in the location we want the file to go may, or may not exist.

i want to take having to 'think' about what the folder and file name should be, or where it is supposed to be saved, i just want the user to be able to easily have the file saved to the PC on the local network in the same easy way i can do it with the *remote* server

i have looked for weeks and cant find anything. i would think somebody out there might have wanted this as in our case it will save a lot of time and make the process of managing and storing incoming client files that much easier
