Good Day Guys,
I have written a code that would let clients send files over the internet to a secured folder in the server.

Now my question is, how can you let the clients download back those files. It is a server to client download. Thank you guys.

What type of files are they???
just give a link to the file on a web page, on click of the link browser will prompt for download

However if you have files like HTML, JPG etc. instead of downloading they'll be opened on the client browser so to avoid that set the page header
