Post looking for semaphore file on a remote system Reply with quote

I want to have a job startup when I have a file present on a remote system. The semaphore watch seems only to work for the scheduler system.
Is there some way of doing this without it getting messy?

Options:
1. Install 24x7 remote agent on the "remote system". Build a job of "24x7 script" type that runs let's say every 10 minutes and checks the file on the remote agent's computer using RemoteDir statement.

Example:
Dim( file_list, string )
Dim( pos, number )

RemoteDir( "agent name here", "*.*", file_list )
Pos( file_list, "you file name here", pos )
// if pos > 0 then start the main job
IfThen( pos, RUN_JOB )
Exit

RUN_JOB:
JobRun( "main job name here" )

2. Can you use FTP to access your "remote system"? If yes, build a script like the following:
Dim( found, boolean )
FTPFileExists( "you file name here", found )

// if found then start the main job
IfThen( found, RUN_JOB )
Exit

RUN_JOB:
JobRun( "main job name here" )
