    Default Read a file from server which is constantly modifying

    Hi, I am new to QT

    what I am trying to do is reading a file from server using qtcpserver and socket.

    It works fine but the twist is the file on the server side is constantly modifying , how can we automatically update the file on the client side... any thoughts??

    Periodically probe it for modifications, say by sending a HTTP request and checking for its cache date?
