How to transfer file from Local PC to UNIX Directory without FTP?

Dear All,
i am trying to get the file from windows location to unix location without using FTP and neither thru entering the user id and password. I have one unix form which is running on web application and user is entering the location and file name there now i know the file name and path. So i just need that file in my unix location for further processing.
Any help will be appreciated.
thanks in advance.

Would this approach help?
Let me google that for you

Perhaps you should use an account that is specifically for this purpose and ensure the password does not change. You should be able to code this in /etc/fstab or whatever your system uses to mount filesystems at boot time.

Could you create a central place on windows that users could put their file, or perhaps link it together? If the user tries to write the file to c:\my_files_for_unix, you can redirect that to write to a LAN drive such as L:\my_files_for_unix. If this is actually mounted from \\main_server\all_user_files\my_user then you could mount the higher directory from unix and if the user name is part of the application's request, then you will know which sub-directory to look in.

So, if we consider user John, there is the user on Windows will need to map to \\main_server\all_user_files\John and be directed to write files there. On the unix side, if you mount main_server\all_user_files to /user_files, then when the application request from John comes in, the file you need to pick up should be in /user_files/John

Does that give you an option?

Where did you get this 'sendunix' command? What protocol does it use? I can't find any information on it.
