Hi All,

 

I have a FTP server that I would like to map it as a local driver. I know how to do it manually on Windows 7 but I would like to creat a a batch, inf file, etc. that can map it for me automatically.

 

Do you have any idea how to do it without (if possible) any 3rd party software?

Thanks guys for your inputs.

well, I would like to create a shared folder that can be updated automatically across all my computers. It's like what Dropbox does but without depending on any cloud.

The following points are vital for me:
1. Files offline mode supported (I may leave one of my computers/server always on)
2. Auto Sync functionality.
3. I can control who have the access.

For that I have found two programs:
1. Bitttorrent Sync
2. AeroFS

In Aero FS, I got worried when it asked me for my signed in User name and Password. I am afraid that they may store some stuff on cloud.
On the other side, when I used Bittorrent Sync, it seems promising as it only share within my local network with secret keys.

This was just very first 5 min experience I have just got with those two programs.

Anyone has a same experience with such programs? or have a better idea?

I don' t get it. :w00t:

 

What has FTP that does not fulfill your requirements and IF it does not fulfill them, WHY you asked about it? :unsure:

 

If it's about security, you can have SFTP/SSHFS instead:

Sorry Jaclaz for the conversion. I want to have a certain directory where I can access it from different computers. If I am the only user, then FTP will be perfect.

But then I thought about sharing it with some friends to share our files. In this case, I am gonna face the problem of files versioning. So that I am thinking about a Dropbox like service without any Cloud files storing (i.e. all files have to be shared within a closed ring/ without putting them on the internet)

I hope it is clear now.

I may be (actually I am) completely unaware on how Dropbox works, but I fail to see how it helps with versioning. :dubbio: maybe you are thinking of "syncing" (which is a different thing IMHO).

 

Maybe you need something *like* git ("versioning") :unsure::

http://msysgit.github.io/

 

or *like* syncany ("syncronizing"):

or maybe pydio/ajaxplorer or similar:
