#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I think i saw a topic a few days ago for this, but cant remember where it is and i used serch... but i want to be able to eather use autoit to turn my pc into a home webserver, i would have to enter the file locations to host manually, or is it possible to get a folder and any contents it shows on internet???

Also how can i setup my webcam i saw a post for this aswell, so it gets hosted on my ip adresss for instance..... http://192.168.254.2:8080/

Does that work with files in a folder or something cos it doesnt make much sence to me at all... And allow people like you to see them on an adress again like...

http://192.168.254.2/website.htm or http://192.168.254.2/setup.exe

Understand...

I'll just say that we won't be able to see them on an address like that, as that is a network IP. 192.168.x.x would put me at my router. If you want to find your IP address, check here: http://www.whatismyip.com/

Yes something like a webserver, but on my windows xp pro operating system....

If i can get help to setup a webserver i can write all in php, html and stuff like that, but i think i saw a autoit script and some other bits what enable me to host webpages....

@ Saunders why doesnt it work with that, like :http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=29904&hl=webcam says me to use, http://192.168.254.2:6969

And when i try to view from other pcs it doesnt work, i have port forarded and unblocked them in firewall...

No. The other user has to run this program. Here's a schematic of how it works and why it should:
  • You enter: "http://ipadress:port/" in Internet Explorer.
  • Internet Explorer understands this, and goes to ipadress at port, there it performs a request to the computer.
  • The program that is running on that computer will respond that to that request in a way as it is designed. In this case, it sends a webcam image back to your Internet Explorer.
  • Internet Explorer builds the image to your screen, and you will be abled to watch it.
Now you see, if the computer that receives the request of your Internet Explorer does not know what to do with your request, it will just error out and you will see nothing. The program that you run tells the computer what to do exactly when Internet Explorer performs this request.
