What does systemB do in this case?  How is this montitored?  What do you do,
keep retrying or go to the next system and eventually come back to the
system that couldn't be accessed?  

My point is FTP doesn't care if it can't attach to another machine either.
Finding if the transmission was successful is as simple as reading the FTP
log text, manually or via a program that knows what to look for.

I disagree.  Maybe a couple hoops, but at least you'd be using something
that is platform independant.  That outweighs the one or two hoops you need
to jump through to see if the transmission was successful.
