Readfile works with pipes,
but I didn't see that it is related to a specific file.
What if I want to transfer a specific file ?

What I did eventually is inviting a protocol between client and server
(Server start. client do request, and than server response, then client do
something and server waits,
and server do something and client waits ... etc.)
At the main scenario :
Server read from the specific file, and send it through pipe (by bulks - a
specific block of BUFSIZE, with some overhead - the protocol command &
actual size).

I succeed to write protocol that works,
but it seems my work I have done is too complicated,
and I was looking for much conveniant way to send a file.

If you used sockets instead of pipes, there's TransmitFile. Note that you
still have to send some header identifying what the file is, but then
Windows takes care of all the file data and buffering for you.

Thanks :)
