My client has requested the ability to view the contents of a remote zip file before downloading it. Is there any method of remotely viewing the metadata/contents of a file before downloading the entire zip file from the server?

I'm using both command line winscp, as well as APIs for Visual Studio (vb.net) 2012.

Thanks for your time.

No file transfer protocol supports that. Unless the server is able to provide archive contents transparently as if it were a regular folder. I'm not aware of any server that supports that though.
