We have in the past. Problem is the overhead on both HTTP as well as the SSL connection. Our clients are transferring files that are 4- to 700 MB to us on a weekly basis. Occasionally we'll get someone like DigitalGlobe who will send us a few gigabytes overnight. When we were running WebDAV, it took forever and another eon. Then we tried using an upload method through https...same thing. FTP has been by far the best solution, fast and painless (for our clients.) Everyone can download an FTP program from the net and connect. But not everyone knows how to configure things to use sftp instead of ftp. And even then, again the overhead has always been the killer. For that matter, even locally, I get much better transfers if I use FTP instead of sftp. Almost 200% faster.
