Files and directory listings on a Web Server

My company uses a (relatively unprotected) web server to access and share files between departments. We use a Document Management System to keep track of (non-confidential)!files on the server. Each Record has a direct link of the form http://www.domain.com/folder/file and as such, the file opens. However, at home, the Document System is unavailable. The files, being on a web server, are still available. unfortunately, when navigating to the web address (http://www.domain.com/folder) I get an Access Denied error screen. But when I enter the full address (http://www.domain.com/folder/file.ext) the file link works without a problem. Do you know of a way to access a proper directory listing of files on the server without changing any server-side options?

Without knowing what software you are using its hard to give specifics but it sounds like you need to change the permissions on the folder. You may have the "read" attribute set but not the "list" attribute, you can open the file if you know its name but not list the contents of the directory. Unfortunatley these permissions must be set from the server side.

Difference between Absolute URL and Relative URL?


assuming you are referring to web sites a relative URL points to a directory /home/whatever/file.html where as an absolute url points to a complete server http://www.mywebserver/home/whateverfile/file.html. this absolute url is handy if you move the files or you can use another web site as a reference pont like for pictures imbedded into the web site or even a reference html file.

How to open and change Santo SC-S260 filter bag ?


to modify a web server and web server pages you need to log in into the system *** an user that have enoght privilages to modifi the software packages and the web directory where all those web sites reside...

in Linux like OS that is the "root" user you can access to that user account by the "sudo" command or the "su" command..

in Windows the user will be the "administrator"

now that you have access to the system as an superuser you can go and modify a web page using a text editor i recommend "scite" for linux and the "notepad" for windows.

if the web site that you want to modify is on web server Apache you have to go
to the web directory root in linux like os this directory is "/var/www/"

in Windows that directory will be C:/Program -files/folder of web server application folder

i hope this helps

Hi I've downloaded flash in a zip file flashmp3player.zip and installed it like it mentioned in the help file I uploaded the file to my web server main directory but I got a problem playing the mp3's...


I set up flashmp3player at home on a Linux server and it played music fine when I loaded it through flashmp3player.html like you said. At home I'm able to access the mp3/ subdirectory but on your site I cannot:

http://pages.videotron.com/mikelac/mp3/

I suspect your web host may be prohibiting access to files and/or directories with 'mp3' in the name. Try copying an mp3 to your web root directory and then downloading it - if access is denied then my theory is correct.

How to download games in samsung corby pro?


Requirements: LAPTOP/PC with wifi support
First of all please set the default storage to memory card for WAP Downloads in your corby pro.
1. Get all the jar files, mp3, mp4, flash objects etc and store it in a directory on your laptop/PC which you want to download to your corby pro
2. Make that directory a Virual directory in Personal Web server of IIS in XP.
3. GO to IIS - Default Web Site - Properties - HTTP headers - MIME File Types
4. Add the following 2 new file types so that your PC/LAPTOP becomes a WAP GATEWAY !!!
a. Associated Extension: .jad, Content Type: text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor
b. Associated Extension: .jar, Content Type: application/java-archive

5. Get the JADMAKER.exe available freely on internet.
6. Use jadmaker to get jad file out of the jar files.
7. put both jad and jar in the same directory which is virtual directory in personal web server of IIS.
8. Assign IP address 192.168.0.1 and subnet mask 255.255.255.0 to your laptop/pc wifi card
9. Assign IP address 192.168.0.2 and subnet mask 255.255.255.0 to your Corby Pro

10. Point the corby pro browser to 192.168.0.1/corby, where corby is the virtual directory configured in IIS pointing to actual directory.
11. You will get the list of files on your corby pro browser, select the jad file of the game/application and see the message you are getting , Go Ahead !!!

Now you can download the contents from your laptop or pc exactly in the same way as if you are downloading it from mobile operators without paying the network charges.

Difference between hub and server


Hub, sometimes referred to as a concentrator or repeater Hub, refers to a networking2_bing.gif component which acts as a convergence point of a Network, allowing the transfer of data packets.

In its simplest form, a hub works by duplicating the data packets received via one Port, and making it available to all ports, therefore allowing data sharing between all devices connected to the hub.

A networknetworknetwork serverserverserver is a computer that provides various shared resources to workstations and other servers on a computer networknetworknetwork. The shared resources can include disk space, hardware access, and email services. Any computer can be a “networknetworknetwork serverserverserver.” What separates a serverserverserver from a workstation is not the hardware, but rather the function performed by the computer. In general, a workstation is any computer used by an individual person to perform his or her job duties, while a networknetworknetwork serverserverserver is any computer that provides users with access to shared software or hardware resources.

Hi, Have you checked your security permissions on the 2003 IIS ?

Are the users using it as Intranet or Internet?

Is the site internal/external or possibly firewalled with rules restricting correct port operation and access permissions?
