Hi panemade,

>how can i send a big file from one pc to another using sockets
divide it into smaller parts (fragmentation) and send it part by part ... at the receiving end, join all the parts to get the complete file.

>Also how to verify it without opening at other side whether it is transferred correctly or not?
look into checksums .... anyway if you are using reliable protocol such as TCP, you would have received the file correctly ... it performs the required tests

Cheers!
