Hey, I want to create a new project in c++ that allows me to retrieve the files stored at college at home.

What would be the best way to do this?

Thank you :)

Sockets? SDL_net?

e-mail... but if u want to code something, winsock

Well, if privacy/security is a concern, perhaps consider encryption?

Depends what you want though. If you're just looking for functionality, why not use some of the freely available file serving software (ftp, ssh, etc.)? Or are you trying to design your own protocol?

Colleges are generaly behind some firewall , you can try to run apache (if it allowed) and acess document via HTTP .
