Edit: The application whose content I need is a web application like :


The application which gives me the list of files from the server can be anything - either a webapp or a desktop application.

This question would fit superuser.com better in my opinion – Joe Philllips Jul 1 '10 at 3:52
Depends on whether the application is web or desktop. For example a we b app that sends me a zip file with all the files from url.com/directory/ then I am not sure, if it is directory listing in terms of server usr/blah/blah then yes @bdhar please clarify – phwd Jul 1 '10 at 3:55
@phwd - edited the question for clarification – bdhar Jul 1 '10 at 4:20
Ok then I agree with @Joe Philllips . This question is about downloading from a server which falls in superuser.com scope not necessarily a non-hosting directory browser checking as in Plesk. In terms of desktop try HTTrack the guys at superuser.com would be better for this. – phwd Jul 1 '10 at 4:41
should be migrated to superuser.com – akira Jul 1 '10 at 4:53
