Linux: http file server


Recommended Posts


In one of the episodes of the first season, someone demonstrates the hfs 'http file server' program.  It is used to quickly create an ftp server on a windows machine.

Is a program like that available for linux?

I tried setting up an ftp service on my ubuntu box (vsftpd), but i'm having trouble selecting virtual directories (is it even possible with vsftpd?). . .

pure-ftpd FTW ^_^

as for hfs programs for Linux, havnt really touched into it much on Linux, atm for my file servers just running Samba, and a few tweeks, though if u want a web interface, u could just use directory listings on Apache, or write some PHP :)
