Client ??" Will use data obtained from the server to surf certain web sites and download images & movies based on criterias defined by the client and the server.
Server ??" Will use a mySQL database and provide all clients with data regaring which web sites to use for download and how to sort through their content.
Secure administrative client ??" Will be used to alter the different settings of the server ??" thus affecting the operation of the clients.

Server installation and configuration:
The server needs to run on a linux redhat installation and be written in Java. It needs to be efficient (Which should not be hard, since it simply provides clients with information upon connection and that's it).
The server should have the following features:
Keep general statistics of client's usage.
Validate client connections using special keys. The client should only run if the server has verified that it has a valid KEY.
Maintain a database containing URLs of which clients can download images/movies from. Each URL will have some data associated with it that helps the client download images/movies from it (Like what niche categories it can download from this URL, and what type of links it should follow to find those images/movies).
