Topic # 106942 3-Aug-2012 08:10 Send private message

I seeking a HTML file management solution, providing similar functionality to WHS2011, i.e. upload/download, rename, create dir, move, delete, etc all via HTML. Maybe MS has a solution, the problem I've faced seaching google is trying to build the right query to avoid file-sharing software.

Is Sharepoint no good for what you want?

Not in this case, I want to write files to SMB share, which requires expensive 3rd party software to extract the SQL Server BLOB into a file system.

I was hoping to use WHS2011 but it does not allow access to SMB, only local file system. I may use file replication as an interim work around.

Edit: WHS2011 cannot be added (out-opf-the-box) to a domain, so I may have to hack this also.

I haven't done this myself, but I'm sure that recent SharePoint versions allow you to write directly to the filesystem. But that wouldn't help you if the SMB share is on a different machine.

Have you looked at this: http://ajaxplorer.info/ (from a quick Google search) Seems to have extensions which support AD domains and authentication methods: http://ajaxplorer.info/plugins/

I've used HTTP Commander before - it has a free version with no source or you can buy the source.

thanks, I'll keep those in mind if I can't get automated file replication to SMB share working.

Tried ajaxplorer (now called Pydio), it does not appear to have integration with AD.

The documentation is poor, so if you want to give it a try you need to be aware of these prerequisites (based on Ubuntu).

apt-get install apache2
apt-get install php5
apt-get install php5-mcrypt

That one is a bit (a lot!) out of my budget.

Then don't buy the full version.  Just hit download, the free version seems to meet your requirements.

Edit: Oh.  It appears they don't have a free version anymore.

Edit 2: Oh, and Geekzone doesn't support Strikethrough.

I was just going to suggest directory browsing. On windows clients you can also use web folders.
Perhaps the ftp server within IIS could help - web browsers can read/browse directories, and windows explorer can read/browse/upload, and because its IIS, it will support the authentication from the users in active directory

Thanks. Yes IIS WebDav is what I have been using, however, as you mention, there is limited client support. This effort is for mobile devices, some of which have limited browser capability, i.e. no SilverLight, flash, etc.

I suspect that the technology you require is WebDAV implemented on IIS.
