HFS ~ HTTP File Server / an FTP server

You might try FileZilla.   They have both a client and a server app.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / running behind a router
« on: December 09, 2004, 12:22:30 AM »
Set HFS to use whichever port you want to use (example: port 12345).   Find out what local IP Address your router is assigning to the machine that is running HFS (example:

Then login to your router and set it up to forward HTTP on port 12345 to IP Address

I have the same router and that works for me.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Adding a tree of real folders
« on: November 27, 2004, 08:52:33 PM »
I just dragged a folder containing subfolders into HFS 2.0 beta 7, and specified that it was not a virtual folder.

HFS added just the root folder to the VFS, but I was able to access all of them  when browsing the site.  I think that this is the way non-virtual folders are supposed to work.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Access for Users - v2 alpha 24

I think "none" means - just clear all check-marks and cancel all users-restrictions...  It might be reprased to Check-ALL , Cancel-All

That's exactly what it means.

If you grant access to specific users, it refuses access to anybody who was not explicitly given access.  

"All" grants access to all listed users, denying access to anonymous browsers.  "None" removes all the explicitly granted permissions, which also removes all restrictions that go along with granting access to specific users and makes it accessible to everybody.

I created a user named "NoAccess", with a password similar to "lajkaghanerxtew".  If I want to deny all access to something, I select "None", then give access to the "NoAccess" user.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / How do you choose to use "Real folders"?
« on: October 03, 2004, 02:43:52 PM »
Open Windows Explorer and HFS side by side, then drag the folder you want to share and drop it onto HFS.

You will be asked if you want it to be virtual.  Answer No.

I think that the most common reason to use a virtual folder is when you want to want to share several files from different locations.

With a virtual folder, you can make files in different real folders or even on different drives available all in the same place.  You can do this without having to share any of the other files around them, and without giving any clue to the files actual physical location.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / DNS Client

i guess what username, pass and ip parameters are
but what should the "host" parameter be?

The hosts are the domain names such as "" that provides for you, that you want to have forwarded to your IP Address.    They allow up to 5 domain names with the free service.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / 2.0 coming...

The most current working version is alpha20.  There is a link to it in the first post of this thread.  When alpha21 comes out, the link in the first post will be changed.

The alpha21 that was posted on the previous page was an unfinished build, not ready for release.  It was not posted by the author (rejetto), and has been removed.

-- Rejetto, perhaps you could create a new topic called "Get the latest version here".  You could make it sticky and read-only.   It would eliminate a lot of confusion on the part of new visitors who don't know where to find it.


HTML & templates / Share Templates
« on: September 12, 2004, 09:22:09 PM »
The template editor built into HFS is understandably limited.  The simplest way to do significant editing of  a template is to use an external text editor.

Go to Menu - Other Options - Edit HTML Template, then click on the Export button.  Save the template to a file, then edit in your favorite text editor.  I use Textpad.  (   After you have saved your changes, use the Import button to load the changed template into HFS.  

Most of the text size and color information is stored in the [style] section.  The colors are defined as 6 digit numbers prefixed by the # sign.  For more information, consult your favorite search engine for HTML color charts.  The size is defined by font-size and font-weight.

Example: { font-size:14pt; font-weight:bold;  }

The background is defined in the "body" line. You can add an item to use a background picture stored in your server folder, or give the complete URL to an image stored on another website.  

body { margin:0; background-color:#DDDDFF; background-image : url(/images/background.jpg); padding:10px;}

body { margin:0; background-color:#DDDDFF; background-image : url(; padding:10px;}

Thank you.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Re: Login bug (very very minor issue)

Always remember to START THE SERVER "only" when the file virtual system highlight is on the root (/) and that won't happen.  Don't start it from within a folder.

I start the server by running the EXE, which starts with the root highlighted.  I can stop the server, make sure the root is highlighted, and then restart the server, but either way I still get the same results.

The one I posted is a no-ip URL.

It redirects to my AMD K6 machine running HFS alpha20 on a nonstandard port.

Right now, the area open to the public is very very very minimal.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Login bug (very very minor issue)
« on: September 07, 2004, 08:21:10 PM »
If a user logs in from any folder other than the root, he is only listed as logged in for that folder or other folders beneath it.   If the user then navigates up to a higher folder, he gets the login button instead of being logged in.   At that point, clicking on the login button logs the user in without asking for username and password, but again only for that folder and folders below it.

I said it was a minor issue.......

You could try

There's approximately nothing there right now, but it's up.

It could be a 302 redirection.   They offer the configuration with basic information about what the result is without going into detail about what mechanism they use.  They list it as a way to get around ISPs that block inbound port 80.    I don't know enough about the subject to tell you more than that.
