Share files among user in FHFS
« on: June 23, 2014, 06:41:03 AM »
Is it possible to share files among multiple users of FHFS?? Or is it so that the files can be accessed with respect to the specific user login. :-\
Please guide.
Thanks in advance..

Yes, it is possible, but it can be very complicated to automate it.

You can either manually add the item to there folder (/ copy the file...)
or
in hfs make a shared folder for the users and add there usernames to the access list...

Either way, i don't see it to being automated, but is possible.

Thankyou so much for the response
I tried uploading the files in the shared folder but the files are not reflected for the other users even after giving the access to the other users.
i have one more doubt
FHFS is not able to archive and download the folders whereas HFS is able to do it. Can you please tell how it can be done

Thanking you in advance

To get back to your post

also on a another post:
http://www.rejetto.com/forum/fhfs/no-archive-download-of-folders-and-absence-of-entire-site-search/msg1059272/?topicseen;PHPSESSID=s1jh7i0hk2nd8ta46eaonga2s5#msg1059272

Fhfs is juat a combination of two programs
in which the fhfs share folder are conected to hfs...

Meaning that hfs needs a share folder access via the two accounts you wanted to have shared files in.
(Easiest way is create a new account and give the information to both users!)

other wise

I'm not understanding your post...

if you want info for hfs to setup and share a folder than i will list step here shortly...
----
info here later
(will modify post shortly after creating documentation and finding a link to help!) :)

good luck!

i will assume that you have fhfs and hfs.exe at thsi location:
C:\Program Files\FHFS\hfs.exe

I will asume that you have read this previous post in which i have helped another user setup there user accounts:
http://www.rejetto.com/forum/fhfs/way-to-change-default-url-root/

*take a look at the last post on it as you will need to know where your users folders are located!
--------------------------------
I will asume the New folder created will be called usershare!

i will use this http path for http side and ftp side comunication:
http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and/or ftp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

(xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is you public ip adress / dns name )

To get back to what i'm tryign to say:

You can eitehr manualy copy the files that you want both users to have acess to,
into each others user folder as in there respected folders they ahvce access too!

or

(which is the information that i will setup here shortly!) you can create a new folder that hfs shares!

(Not a ftp shared - oitehr things are involvoed in that!) - whcih i belive you faceing issues not
understanding the 2 programs and whcih users areas for acess eith http or ftp... so,  on where to where

HFS: (which i recomend you doing):
We need to setup a shared folder and bring acces to it via http
(this may include manualy creating user accounts for them!)
in your fhfs path (C:\Program Files\FHFS\) we will create a new folder
rename the fodler to what you want, in my case i will use (usershare)

now we shoudl have a path:
C:\Program Files\FHFS\usershare

Set windows side permission for access:(as found/known in previous post)
******
You will need to change the set/permision of this folder path:
*see pictures

Make sure you are the "folder's OWNER":

Right Mouse click > Properties > Security tab > Advance button
Advance security settings for fhfs > Owner tab > Edit button
Checkbox Replace owners on subcontiners and objects
click on your current windows user name (%user)
(in pictures i have scratched this out...)

apply and ok wait for setting to finish!

Apply your new folder permissions:

Right Mouse click > Properties > Security tab > Advance button
Advance security settings for fhfs > permissions tab >
In the drop down list you will need these users/groups and apply full control to them all

Uncheck the box "include inheritable permissions form the objects parent
*(IF asked click add the users/groups)
these groups need to be added:
System
Administrators
Users
these users need to be added:
(Your current user name)%user
Trustedinstaller
everyone
Creator Owner

----Now file permissions are good for program and user access!---
*****

In HFS we wil add this folder path as a REAL FOLDER!

Now we will set hfs server side permisions...
right click on the newly added folder properties
(if the users accounts don't already exist) add a user...

set acess/upload/delete rights

it should now be accessible via: http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\usershare

----- :/
FTP:
(i will not go into as i would go about this another way with full acess to filezila gui!)
but these are the steps:
We have to make the folder ftop sharable in the ftp server...
First we create a folder
Then we set windows file permsions
then we set user acess
then we test with read/write...

access capable via filezilla client side or other ftp client progmar to goto path
ftp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/usershare

thank you for your time and patience,
