Hi Lazwaz,

I'm not sure about the exact meaning of your question. As you're writing some client server application, your question would be how to implement that file transfer on your application. Otherwise it would be how to transfer your client part to the client machine.

Assuming the second option, as you said you don't want to use ftp, there are several ways to transfer a file from one machine to another. All these options need rsh or ssh services and a known user on the remote host. Y also need rsh or ssh client on the local host. Here I define "local host" is the machine you are typing and "remote host" is the machine you want to talk to.
The latest and shiniest tool for transfer files is "rsync". It was developed and maintained by the samba team. It can work under rsh or ssh. If you have ssh, you can use "scp". If not, but has rsh, you can use "rcp". If you have rsh or ssh but does not have rsync, scp and rcp, you can use the old and ubiquitous "tar". Just start an archival session on the local side and pipe its output to [sr]sh to the remote side calling an unarchiving tar; see the examples:
rsync -azv --rsh=[rs]sh <local-directory> <remote-user>@<remote-computer>:<remote-directory>

(cd <local-directory>; tar c .) | ([rs]sh [-l <remote-user>] "cd <remote-directory>; tar xv)
