asked on

A client/server program between my computer and a website.

Hello,
  How would I be able to have a program where anyone who uses a particular website is the client, and they can retrieve files from my computer, the server?  I have been looking through other questions, but they aren't exactly what I am looking for.  If you know how to do something like this, I would appreciate the help.
Thankyou

thats how any web server works already, what specifically do you need.
You could install a C/S applet, where the applet originates from your PC
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gob/

might be worth looking at
An applet is not required, you can handle the file transfer far more easily using the web server and html.

Why do you assume the web server is the same machine that the files are coming from?

The reason why I am doing this is because my server cannot hold many files.  Is there a way I can just type in something to the effects of: Say a client clicked a link, the link would retrieve a file from my computer, and would open it back at the client?  My web server is Geocites, in case it makes a difference.
Yes thats pretty much what I was suggesting above.
