Hello All:

    I wrote an ftp client that is used to post various files to my website
that are then downloaded to my customers computers. I now need to write
essentially the same functionality using http.

    I have figured out how to use the get method to retrieve a file to disk
and understand the basics.

    1) How can I get a hist of files in a specific directory using http ???
(If this is not possible do programmers use a workaround such as uploading a
text file with the list of files in that directory )

    2) How can I rename an existing file in a directory on a website using
http ??? (Any workarounds if not possible ???)

    3) How can I delete an existing file in a directory on a website using
http ??? (Any workarounds if not possible ???)

    Thank you very much. We are using http because ftp gets blocked by too
many routers, etc and some of our vendors are now requiring future
communications thru http.
