Network Programming SFTP


I would like to start off by saying that this is going to be a tall order of help.

I am new to network programming in Qt and have been tasked to create something that is network based. I have a basic design layed out for this program already, so that will not be a problem.

For starter, let me explain what the program needs to do:

1. It needs to pull updates from a folder on a server.

2a. It needs to look in a folder labeled for the operating system. I.e WinXP, Win7, Centos 6.3, etc. for the updates. (So check operating system the program is on and navigate from there.)

2b. It needs to check the updates for ones that it has already installed.

2c. It needs to install the new updates.

3. It needs to show the details of the update progress in a line edit box.

4. It needs to write the details in a log file as well.

5. It needs to schedule when to check for updates next.

6. Most importantly, it needs to do this over SFTP.

All i have so far is the basic New File, QT Gui, Mainwindow application.

This is currently programmed on a linux, but will mainly be employed on a windows client.
