That is simply not possible; it has to do with security. You (a webserver) 

are not allowed to do that. The only way you can get a file from the 

client machine to the server is using the file upload method:

<INPUT type="file" id=file1 name=file1>

but remember, this is a users 'push' event to the server. they decide what 

you receive.

Johan
