    newbie needs help with simple program

    i know very little about c++ but i'm trying to learn...

    What i need to create is a program that goes to remote folders and grabs the files , brings the files (logs to be exact) to the local computer and zips them to a specified folder.

    I would like to have the remote servers be a drop down box so you pick the server and the shared folder and then pick your destination folder.

    Doesnt seem that hard but i dont know where to even start.

    Thanks in advance,
    Eric

    Do you know how to perform basic file I/O?

    Now you're talking about the creation a GUI program which is really more appropriate to one of the OS specific boards than the general C++ board.
