Quickie webserver for MSwindows.

You will need to get and install python for you MSWindows.
You will want to go to and download the version for your system and for more downloads.
Please use their instructions for installing the product. Also contact them if you need help with it.

Assuming you now have python installed, go to the command prompt  and type ipconfig so you know what address to put in the url of the other computer. Write or make note of the address.
Then change to the directory you want to serve. I just used the root directory and typed:

c:\python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8080

You are in business.

Now you want to go to the machine you want to download the files to.

1. Open up your web browser and type In the url type in the ipaddress you found in the last step with :8080 added on the end, then press enter (that is just the port being used instead of the usual port 80.)


2. You should see the directory of the host computer. if there is an index.htm(l) file in that directory it will be displayed instead of the directory. (you will need to rename it if you just want to download files.

Viola, you done. Now you can download files if you need to.


Pasta al pesto.

Good day.
