  • You can share a specific drive on your PC (host) and this server generates a directory listing for the same.
  • The directory listing page will be accessed via the web-browser on the URL (http://<yourIPonhomenetwork>:<port>/).
  • Each folder/file appears as a link that you can click and navigate.
  • There are no file size restrictions.
