    From the web? I dont think so......unless the server has a big security hole

    You get content from webservers with a GET request.....in this you specify the page you want.........you cant enumerate (as far as I know!)

    You get proggiez that download websites, but they search the page for hyperlinks to other pages and then go from there....
