I have a cable modem and tons of MP3's. I would like to be able to downlod them at work and listen to them when I want.

From what I can tell I would need the following:

1. Some type of server software to access my file server from the net. I was thinking of Analogx's Simple Server.

2. A program to list or show my MP3's as a web page where I can click and DL.

Is this possible? If so, does anyone have a suggestion as to what program I should look for? I have nothing of interest or value on my MP3 jukebox other than Win2k and 6 gigs of MP3's. Should I proceed with this plan or use something like Remote Administrator?

Thanks in advance.

You could write a perl script to do that. Shouldn't be too much work. Have it find all .mp3s and list them alphabetically, then dump that into an HTML file.

Put the file names in between the tags, then throw a <br /> tag at the end.

since you have win2k, and it would just be for you, i would suggest iis5. it comes with win2k pro (the pro version of win2k / iis 5 has a 10 person at a time limit). go to Andromeda and get the asp version of the script. you will also want to go to microsoft and d/l the urlscan / iis lockdown tool so others can't exploit your server. also update your copy of windows after you install iis 5, there will be updates.

here is a link to my site which uses andromeda, i have the links turned off on this particular site for demonstration purposes ->

hope this helps...http://muzic.sytes.net

You guys have given me some excellent suggestions, and I especially like the appearance of Bob's MP3 site. The problem is that I know little to nothing about programming or FTP'ing other than posting files to my personal ISP provided web space.

However, this is a subject that I want to learn so the timing of your suggestions may be just right. I will read up on ISS5 and Andromeda. I like the look and it is exactly what I want.

Thanks Much!

I just downloaded the evaluation version for a test drive. What I see is exactly what I want. I'll work with the ISS and tutorials or get help until I can get it working. Thanks
