I'm trying to think of the overall picture of how this would work. And I'd like to run some more questions by you:
* I guess I'd want to run Apache on a Linux box to be the web server
* I'd like to use RubyOnRails to be the dynamic language that determines whether there is new web content to download
* I'd like to use BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service) on the Windows side, to transfer data over HTTP?
* Can .txt files be transferred over the HTTP protocol without firelarms raising an alarm?
* Is there a reason I should *NOT* use BITS on the Windows side to facilitate the transfer? It has a bunch of useful features it seems. If not, what method would you reccomend?
* Does Apache with RubyOnRails meet the following qualifications of BITS?:
Background Intelligent Transfer Service
BITS supports HTTP and HTTPS downloads and uploads and requires that the server supports the HTTP/1.1 protocol. For downloads, the HTTP server's Head method must return the file size and its Get method must support the Content-Range and Content-Length headers. As a result, BITS only transfers static file content and generates an error if you try to transfer dynamic content, unless the ASP, ISAPI, or CGI script supports the Content-Range and Content-Length headers.
BITS can use an HTTP/1.0 server as long as it meets the Head and Get method requirements.
To support downloading ranges of a file, the server must support the following requirements:
* Allow MIME headers to include the standard Content-Range and Content-Type headers, plus a maximum of 180 bytes of other headers.
* Allow a maximum of two CR/LFs between the HTTP headers and the first boundary string.
I am not aware of a BITS implementation for Linux.
Can .txt files be transferred over the HTTP protocol without firelarms raising an alarm?
Like any software firewalls can do whatever they want. Each one has whatever capabilities the creator gave it. Besides that they are highly configurable and each owner will have it configured however they prefer. The bottom line is there are no guarantees of what will get through a firewall..

I have an application written in VC++ which will dyanmically generate the html file and display. I have a requirement where if I am displaying the html in the Japanese OS, I should be able to display Japanese characters and any other supported language characters.
We used the default charset i.e without mentioning any charset in the html content parameter.
We are using this to display the set of files in the tree format.
It works fine for the files with the small name. If the file name grows beyond some length, characters displayed will get currupted and display some unknown characters. Then onwards complete encoding will not work.
If I use japanese character set for Japanese, it works fine. but default is creating the problem. I tried using the UTF-8, which is also not working.
Please let me know for any generic way handling this issue.
I.e. Ob2 shall use the value of its ref property to access properties in ob1, and assign the value to accessTextOfOb1
E.g. Remember when an activeX control could access the properties of a java applet (wrapped in a COM wrapper), directly, as it could be passed an IDispatch to the native activex object ? Well, can we do the same thing now between 2 .NET controls loaded on a HTML page?
