     You will see, this is actually two apps using Winsock. The one is the file server and the other is the client. With the client you can specify a file to download from the server. It then downloads the file with a speed between 250 - 360 kb/s depending on your network (I could only test it on a LAN)Other cool thing: Multithreading for multiple connections and when you minimize the server dialog, it jumps to the system tray. The system tray code is not mine though - all credit for that have to go to: Damjan Miholjevich NB:Remember to link to ws2_32.lib.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
