I think your post belongs to "Sockets and Internet Protocols" forum.
What do you mean by storing a folder to the server?

It means storing the folder into unix box.

If this query doesn't belong to this forum then please move to the respective one.

Do you have an FTP connection, or a Telnet connection (or SFTP or SSH or .....)? Or even a connection to a server application that you wrote yourself and is therefore totally proprietary?

If you don't provide us with any details at all, we cannot even start to give help. Please take a look at TellTheDetails and NotACodeMill for some things that might help you get good answers here.

You don't "store a file to a server", you use a server to store files in itself (or wherever). That means you need some sort of server program (don't confuse a server hardware for the actual server softwares!). This can be a file server such as Samba, or it could be a custom web application that has a file upload function. Or any one of a number of server programs such as ftp.

Unix and Windows are alike in this regard. If you want to transfer a file into another computer using a network connection, there has to be a server program running on the target machine that's willing to receive and store the data.

I agree. Here's the link:
