CloudFTP – Web Server Development

April 9, 2012 1 Comment

I have recently received my CloudFTP device from HyperShop and, in my spare time, will be trying to take advantage of this device’s unique capabilities. I want to see if this can be turned into a mobile web server that can act independent of the Internet.

I will be an active member of the CloudFTP forums. You can follow my activity here: http://cloudftp.freeforums.org/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=243

I will update this project as I get to know this device and experiment with it’s capabilities.

So far…

  • I have updated it’s firmware to version 11 BETA
  • Connected the device to use my home wifi network – keeping the device’s data private and secure, but accessible to any other devices that are allowed on my home network (D-Link DIR-628 router)
  • Can connect to the CloudFTP device’s stock browser from Android (with UI issues due to WebKit dependencies) browser, Windows Chrome (no UI issues), and iPad2 Safari (no UI issues).
  • Accessed the external USB connected to my CloudFTP via FTP connection via WinSCP for Windows and ES File Explorer app for Android
  • Mapped a drive to Windows computer using the FTP access to the CloudFTp device

    On the PC, FTP Manager Lite is one of the best free FTP client software. The clean interface is super easy to use. It will perform your files transfers quickly and efficiently. It also supports FXP for superfast server to server transfers. It is perfect for backups or synchronizing servers.
