RAWR-Designs / Re: Open in new window code for file system.
« on: March 17, 2009, 02:20:38 PM »
I also didn't know you could append that to a URL :p

The company I work for uses target="_blank" fairly regularly and so do a lot of other sites.  However, the web standards are in agreement with TSG - the decision to open a page in a new window/tab should be left with the user and not determined in code.  In fact, in the W3C standards the target attribute is not part of (X)HTML Strict and is intended to only be used in conjunction with frames.

ok so i set every thing up and fallowed all guides. gcs8 serveftp net:13000/ nada can only get in on the way witch gets us no where. any 1 have any ideas?

Try the Self-Test feature of HFS.

If it succeeds, then everything is probably good.  Try connecting to your server from outside the LAN, i.e. with a friend's help or at school/work.

If self-test fails, then check your firewall exceptions and router port forwarding.

Yeah I agree TSG.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Re: HFS doesn't run
« on: February 06, 2009, 07:35:07 PM »
HFS can be configured to open up "hidden" with only an icon showing in the system tray (an icon in the lower right corner).  Check to see if there is an icon for HFS there.  You can read the little tooltip messages to determine which one belongs to HFS, if any.

Also, when you press Ctrl+Alt+Del and look at the processes tab in Task Manager do you see hfs.exe in the list of applications running?

What version of HFS are you using?  What operating system?

What about other magic pages like /~upload   (on a folder with upload enabled)

Please note that a web hop is a redirect page so attempting to access a sub page of your server from one may not work (I can't remember).  I think you wanted dynamic DNS.

May I ask: are you using URL cloaking?

I think HFS would need cookies support for that

EDIT: that was a response to parade

router & port problems / Re: Selftest works, still can't connect...

I've had routers before that had their remote management setup to port 8080 and even though it was disabled the port was still "claimed" and no connections on the port were forwarded to the destination PC.  The solution was to change the port the remote management was using.

RAWR-Designs / Re: IP Detection
« on: February 02, 2009, 03:30:51 PM »
local LAN ip?
i think only localhost/ should be. :-\
anyway, i think HFS should support the apache proxying, and may show you the real ip.
let me know.

Is this an option?  A quick test from my office computer and %ip% expanded to 192.168.1.x.  I'd also be a bit wary of trusting as routing HFS through stunnel should yield similar behavior to my setup - and stunnel would typically be installed on the same PC as HFS.

I'm not sure where you ran into trouble, but if you are asking what URL to give her to access your server you can follow what I wrote below.

If you have registered a dynamic DNS name for your server (you mentioned dns in your post), configure HFS to manage it with the Dynamic DNS updater wizards.  At that point its just a matter of giving her the dns name.  For instance, if your DynDNS is and your server is listening on (or rather your router is forwarding) port 8080, then the URL to your server would be  The port number can only be ommitted if port 80 is used; however, many ISP's block port 80.

Obviously, make sure your default.html is in the virtual file system.

TSG/Giant Eagle

I'm in the process of moving my HFS server onto a different machine and will be using my Apache server to reverse proxy user connections over to it.  This means that every user who connects to my server is seen by HFS as having a local LAN IP, and triggering RAWR template features geared toward an administrative user such as the Update panel.  In future releases can you add a variable at the top of the template to disable this just like you did for the IP display?

Thanks much, 8063

« on: January 30, 2009, 08:25:44 PM »
Some routers do not support loop-back, meaning you cannot connect to a LAN device using an external IP.  Self-test should be a good indication that your server is reachable from outside your LAN.  You can also have a friend try connecting to your server.

It's on Rejetto's to-do list but I wouldn't expect it soon :)

Hi noussibeau,

At this time HFS does not support PHP or MySQL.  You will need to run a different server to use these technologies.

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Re: opinions and requests
« on: January 27, 2009, 09:28:28 PM »
It would be clumsy to call external tools to do the data gathering job rather than using an HFS built-in function.  Further, as a newcomer to HFS, I still have lots to learn about how it works, and I also lack the free time to do this soon.  So a built-in foldersize variable would be useful.  It could read whole folder size (all files in each folder).

Consider that many servers rely on external tools to perform advanced or time consuming operations (such as the one I work on professionally).  A batch script could offer you a lot of flexibility as well.  An exec macro could be incorporated to run the file size script whenever a file is uploaded to a folder, for instance.
This would not work if a file is added directly on the server  :(

Very true, but HFS couldn't detect that either.  HFS doesn't know what's in a real folder until the user requests the contents.
