Re: Access remote directory with a public IP address

And what there is to the other end of the line? A shared Windows directory? A directory in an FTP server on Linux? Anything else? Precise us a little bit your problem please.

Uh ... VB6 is really unavoidable? ...

thank you,

The directory which I want to access is a shared folder on windows that contains files that can be downloaded .

If you want to access the other phone from far away (so not using Bluetooth) it is getting challenging. The problem is that you need to create TCP/IP connection to the phone, but getting the IP addres to connect to would be quite complicated. You would need to use a proxy server, and the connections would need to be initiated from the both phones to the server... Of course both phones would need to have the sharing application also running.You could also check the mobile web server project
