File Share Server


I am trying to make a file transfer program that can send and receive files from a server running on a linux-based(QNX) system and the client is on a Windows 2000 machine.

Will this be a good approach:-

1. Display Menu on Client: a) Upload b)Download
2. Get file name
3. Send the command 'a' or 'b' to the server using send()
4. Server receives the command using recv()
5. If 'a'
"Client Side"
i) send size of file
ii) send file ?? [should i send it as multiple of 512/1024 or in one go]
"Server Side"
i) Recieve the file size using recv()
ii) Read to buffer using recv()
iii) Write buffer to file
if 'b'
"Client Side"
i) get size of file
ii) recv file
iii) write to file
"Server Side"
i) send size of file
ii) send file ?? [should i send it as multiple of 512/1024 or in one go]
"Server Side"

Is there a better way ?? If so, how and any examples would def be appreciated.
