I would suggest looking at FTP, SFTP or SCP specification
and turning it to your needs.

Here is the link to the FTP protocol specification:

I don't have any sample code how to do it with Boost.Asio,
but there are lots of working examples of FTP servers/clients
on the Web and Asio has a good documentation
including the whole sources of several similar apps.

Hope it helps :)
