i have a jsp page that lists me the names of the zip files in a paricular directory on a remote computer over the network.wat i want to do is download those files.so when i click on them it gives me "page cannot be displayed" error.but when i go to that remote machine and run the same jsp to list me the files and download the same it allows me to download the files.but i want the same functionality over the network.so i think that that link is looking for that file locally instead of looking for them over the network.so is it so that i need to give the ip of the remote machine from where i want to download the file and if yes then how and if no then is there any way that i can do it some other way.
in short this functionality is like downloading some file from the net like downloading software or music....i want to incorporate the same on my jsp.please guide me.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
