if your GSM modem has a TCP/IP stack it should certainly be possible to use FTP (HTTP is a different protocol)
some modems have an FTP application installed or you could write it yourself using the FTP protocol
what exactly do you want to do?

have a look thru the user guides etc on the SIM300 to see if supports FTP
**broken link removed**

if not you will have to implement FTP yourself - try a web search "embedded FTP" it should turn up plently of links

An alternative is for you to write own client and server to transfer the data using either TCP or UDP.
I tend to prefer this for small amount of data as it saves the overhead of FTP

sorry, am not using sim 300 modem, but a modem that supports all the sim 3oo at commands. And sim 300 at commands contains nothing about ftp

Looking at the AT command set manual for the SIM 300 it does appear to support the TCP/IP commands/
If your omdem is fully compatible with eth sim300 you should be able to implement simple FTP or write your own file transfer client/server aplication.
