Get file listing from web address

P: n/a
Hi,

How can i retrieve the list of files within a specific URL?
ex: www.myAddr.com/download

Do I have to use a ftp connection to download those files or I can copy
them directly to my local folder with my VB.NET code?

Thanks,
Marty

Dear Marty,

If web server accept to direcotry listing, You can retreive
all files by HTTP. But, usually web server does't accept it.
If so, You should use FTP or other way...
