server and client.
is it possible to have additional functionality such as automated
restart when the connection between the two is lost?
I know we could use other protocols for this, however at present
there's a requirement that the client's could be any of the common ftp
client programs hence looking at keeping it sftp.
apologies for the vagueness, however it's all I know at the moment...

SFTP is NOT FTP. Common FTP programs won't work with SFTP
With best regards,
I use WebDAV over HTTPS for this. If your clients can be convinced to use
standard web browsers for download, they can upload files using the Windows
"Network Neighborhood" or the publicly available WebDAV tools such as the
Konqueror browser built into recent Linux releases, or the Java based
DAVexplorer for MacOS and any other system that runs Java.
FTP has no use these days except for public download sites and private sites
where you really don't care about the passwords of the users.
SFTP and SSH in general have a real problem with non-local-users being given
accounts to places where you want to give the users access to only a small,
local directory. They don't have "chroot" capability built in, and it's a
pain in the ass to set up, so giving a user an SFTP or SSH accessible
account means they can usually get into the rest of your file system to poke
around without too much effort. And you probably don't want that.
