    Hi Guy's

    To follow on from this thread, I was wondering if anyone knows of a cheap/free way of accessing your home folder/directory from a webpage.

    I've already tried setting up a ftp site and already tried webdav however there are problems with IE7 and vista, plus I'm looking for something easy for the kids at our school to use.

    I am not sure if this will help Ken but here goes.

    At work I use an ftp set up that accesses customers files that they have uploaded to a site that gives us a certain amount of space (this place is company based in the US called WAMNET), I also use ftp client software called cuteFTP this allows me to access a customers folder on their network which directly relates to the files I need to download from them.

    cuteFTP works well, its easy to setup and as long as both ends grant it full access then thats it here is a link to the site http://www.globalscape.com/products...ogle-CuteFTP&gclid=CLOsqf_qvJECFQPtlAodPTIJdg

    hope this helps

    I'm not sure I know precisely what you are looking for here. :ohmy

    Do you want the web-page to display the folder the same way that you would see it in Windows explorer? If so, some people will want to 'run' an app from that!

    Or just to be able to transfer files? For that I use WinSCP.
