I think any file by file access across a WAN won't be the fastest
method. If you can zip everything up locally and unzip it remotely
you'll get the best network bandwidth usage sending the zip file with
FTP. Will the increased bandwidth utilization compensate for the time
to zip and unzip? Hard to tell. If the option is there I'd likely just
use FTP and MPUT (or MGET) to move all the files.

Is NFS suitable for batch copying many files to a drive on a Win system across

or is it more for accessing files on other servers and use ftp for batch
transfers like this?
Hundreds of files in the 1-20 meg range size. These are .tif and .pdf from
