Internet transfer of files

I've taken two different approaches to writing this program and I've run into problems both ways.  I'm trying to transfer a file over the internet.  I'm using Delphi 4 with it's internet tools.  

I tried using the TNMStrm and the TNMStrmServ and it works for smaller files, but locks up with bigger files.

Then I tried using the TClientSocket and the TServerSocket, and padding the file myself, but I seem to be having problems on the recieving end.

Can anyone help me with one or maybe both approaches, or maybe have another better way of doing it.

Thank you

You could take a look at Francois Piette's ICS package, it is free with source and lots of examples. Check http://www.rtfm.be/fpiette/indexuk.htm

Or IP*Works which is my favorit. But it isn't free. It costs about $300. But using their FTP component is very easy!

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Those components look great, but they have very little documentation.  Which is the bast component(s) to use to send a file from one machine to another via the internet?

GMS300. Your correct, not much help-files around, but a great free mailing list!

What about using the FTP components (FTPCli = Client; FTPSRV = server site)? (FTP : File Transfer protocol), you can offcourse create your own protocol, but the FTP is standard... or use UDP.

Regards, Zif.

Thank you all....  That seemed to work alot easier than I thought it would.  I wish I would've known about that weeks ago when I started this project.  Well, the points are for whoever of the above that wants them.  

Thanx again
