Noob question: Turning LAN shared folder address into IP address
I want to create an http address that will access a certain file in a folder. When I put it into my browser the file will automatically open with its default program. It has to be an http address.
The file is on a shared drive that is running on a local server. On my computer it appears as:
Equancy on 'srv-equancy' (Z: )
Srv-equancy is the server, equancy is the drive, as far as I am aware.
I also have the IP address of the server.
This is the location of the file as it appears on my computer:
Sorry about if I have missed out information.
Can anyone help?
You can install apache web server:
That will allow you to make the file available via http.
Many thanks for the reply.
So is there no way of doing it whilst we are using Windows Server for SMB?
we are using ftp instead.
You would just need to setup a web server (IIS, Apache, etc) as you would for any other site, except you will set your mapped directory to be the Home/DocumentRoot directory.
