Then you need a serverprocess ont the remote PC and a client process on the
local PC. You can define your own protocol for listing directories and transferring
files. I think the siplest way to implement such a protocol is to send command lines
and return one or more lines of text as output (perhaps followed by an empty line
to show the end of the output).

You also need the Java Communications API (http://java.sun.com/products/javacomm/).
