Share files with friends an family RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi

    It will be great to add to WHS a function to share data (music, pictures, doc) with friends and family who will be able to download from the WHS via web.

    May be a FTP server or something like that... with advanced functions (specific shared folders for specific groups, manage upload band-width, simultaneous connections...)

     

    Nice day,

  • This functionality is already built into WHS. To illustrate the point, while your on your on the network with your WHS server:

    --snip--

    Open your web browser and type in the url: http://server

    Click on the login in the upper right.

    Enter a username and password (you can create a guest login).

    You have full access to the files (both uploading and downloading).

    --snip--

    To extend this off your home network you would need to set the port forwarding on your router for the http, https, etc protocols to your WHS box.
