You know that the ftp put can be protected by passwords and resricted to
a limited set of people. But I suspect you cannot change your current constraints.
I'm not expert in ssh and I don't know if it's possible to launche Amaya thru a 
ssh tunnel.
One solution could be to write a script that does automatically the job before and 
after launching the amaya session.
