Microserver

Easy to install and use mini-server for your PC

Microserver Screen Shot Microserver [Datasheet] is a simple personal web server that runs on your PC. It's a Java-based program so it runs on any platform that can run Java. Supporting both HTTP and secure HTTPS protocols, you can use it on your local Intranet or extend it depending on external fire-wall/router port forwarding settings.

The tool is installed in your home directory as subdirectory "eo_microserver". A "public" subdirectory is used for documents available for general viewing. "Project" subdirectories can be set up to provide password-protected access to users with specified access privileges. You can use Microserver to let your handheld computer access your main PC. An example use would be to allow handheld computers running Schematic Mobile, WaveformViewer, Layout or Editor to store files in project directories on a PC on your local wifi network.
