As I explained in winsock newsgroup, standard FTP protocol is simply unable to do what you ask. You have at least two solutions using ICS: 1) You forget the idea of FTP. Iinstead your write a custom server program to do what you want. ICS if perfect for doing that. You _must_ have permission to run you own server program where it has direct access to the file you want (probably on the FTP server itself). 2) You still use FTP but replace the actual FTP server by a custom made FTP server using ICS FTP server component. This component can be extended with commands to do anything and you can use ICS FTP client component to write the client side. Of course here again, you need to have permission to run your custom FTP server (can use a non standard port to avoid conflict with existing FTP server). btw: You should really use a better subject ! In this mailing list, everything is related to ICS. You won't catch subscriber attention if you don't use a proper subject for your messages ! -- Contribute to the SSL Effort.
