That's right.

Great, will have a look (don't have my PocketBook handy right now).

That sounds intriguing - shell access was what I was hoping for (though I was imagining I might just ssh into the device), so I'll definitely give that a try!

Code:
wget http://192.168.0.100:8000/myfile.epub
Another way would be to point the browser directly to the correct url instead of using the remote shell access.
Excellent - being an Ubuntu user, this would probably be the easiest way for me.

Thanks for the offer, but I think the above gives me plenty to go on for now. I can't anticipate my own usage patterns yet, so will report back once I've tried some of the options for a while.
