Hi, Its and external server. The application is like an application updater that will check for new updates in a txt file. So I have a text file uploaded like this. The files that I want to be downloaded is named in that patch.txt file. The files named in there will be uploaded in the same directory as the patch.txt file so the updater can download them. So If I want to add a new update then I should only need to upload the new file and then edit the patch.txt and add the name of the file in there. I hope you understand what I mean. So my question is: How can I make it read a text file from an external server and loop through them and then download the files?

Any help would be appreciated.

What problem are you having with your code? Is the file local to the server the webpage is running from, or is it on an external server? Do you actually want to read each line consecutively, or do you want to just dump the contents of the entire file into a textbox?

Not a question. If you say "I want", you can do it.

string curFileMenu = @"C:\Accounting\Accounting\Accounting\TextFileMenu.txt";
            if (File.Exists(curFileMenu))
                string[] menunames = System.IO.File.ReadAllLines(curFileMenu);

                foreach (string menuname in menunames)
                    lnLenght = menuname.Length;
                    lnLenghtLast = menuname.IndexOf("::") + "::".Length;
                    lnLenghtFirst = menuname.LastIndexOf("::");
