I'm working on an application that shows images (amongst doing many other things).  The target audience is developers working as a team across a network.  I'd like to offer them the ability to work via the internet.  The program would show a list of their Bookmarks/Favourites, they click on one of these and the program would display the compatible files available via HTTP from that site.  I've already done something similar with FTP.  The target platform is Windows.

After reading through the HTTP specification I can't find a way to do this.  I don't see a way to get a list of files of a particular type (something like GET *.jpg).  There are options in the request header for matching but these appear to define wether the resource is transfered or not, something like requesting 'get bricks.jpg if its a jpg'.

Am I misunderstanding the options in the header?  I can't find any example of this being done or how the results would be returned.
