Very nice. Making a file server was one of the items on the (very
long) list for the Guide. If you do want to make a general purpose
server, I'd consider:

* using a large block size, e.g. 64K at least, for performance reasons
* make it work both from server-to-client and client-to-server
* implementing a simple staging protocol to allow restartable file transfers

If you want a sketch for a staging protocol I've got one somewhere.
