Firstly a little background to my problem. I have a Win2k based server with images stored on it (mainly images: ai, tiff, psd etc. also some pdf files). I need to be able to upload/download these images from the server to Macs (vice versa) using FileInputStream/FileOutputStream in a simple web based tool and . The tool works fine, all except one small prolem. When I download the files, it seems to loose some information about the files, such as the thumbnail, file type and default application to open the file with. This problem does not occur when the files are downloaded to a PC.
For now I have written a small batch file which the Java tool calls, to do the upload/download (this works fine) but is not ideal.
I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem, or could help solve it.
