WEBFILEFETCH <Filename> <URL>
A little goodie... but this is a very basic HTTP client, so it won't work with all sites


i havent been able to mess around with this yet, but was wondering a few things..

will it work if i wanted to download files from another xbox (on the same netowork)
EX: WEBFILEFETCH game01.zip 192.2.1.25

where would it save the file?

could i "fetch" an entire directory

do i have any clue what i am talking about???? blink.gif

this is what i want to do.. dunno if its possible...

have 2 xboxes on the same network

have MXM running on both Xboxes

download the LIST of games into variables (im not sure about this part uhh.gif ), so each game name would be stored as game001, game 002 and so on. and it would have to get the name of the game from the folder name, or the xbe

have a dialog with the list of games with checkboxes on which ones i want to download (or upload)

i know this wouldnt be posible with the latest public release, but i dunno about the next release

That could only work if there was an HTTP server running on the other xbox.

flattspott is correct, you can fetch a file, using HTTP 0.9 (Simple) protocol from a valid HTTP server, but not from xbox-to-xbox. It places the file in the current directory, unless you specify the directory, and it can only get one file at a time.

I plan on enhancing the ability soon, by upgrading support to HTTP 1.1
