Hi All,

Many thanks Phil, Andre and Sivakatirswami
for your answers! :-)

Looks like it should be completely necessary
that i start learning about sockets communications
and TCP IP.

This is a completely new area of knowledge
for me and, if my guess is right, would require
its own share of "puzzled contemplation".

Later this week, as workload returns to normal,
i would tackle this chore.

I remember that some years ago, i used FTP
transfers from stacks to a server.

Then, from this server, stacks could read a
list of files in a directory and the user
could download any of them.

Did exist a stack that implements directly
the FTP protocol to serve files?

I understand the limitations of FTP. Read:

but it's good idea to have more than one
option available.

Thanks in advance for your answers and many,
many thanks again for your invaluable help!!!
