"Anonymous" upload via an FTP Logon

We often get asked by clients to allow pages on their websites to essentially upload files anonymously to their sites.....

Unfotunately as our servers are running under Windows and not Linux, we cannot provide the anonymous internet user with the ability to upload files into a folder on your website.

The reason for this is that we get targetted by hackers who very quickly find these directories and then upload everything from trojans and viruses to phishing sites....

If you want to provide this ability, you will need to do it by embedding a legitimate FTP logon and password that has write access to the folder concerned into a server side page that you have up on your site.

Virtual Network Computing

(VNC) is a graphical desktop sharing system that uses the RFB protocol to remotely control another computer. It transmits the keyboard and mouse events from one computer to another, relaying the graphical screen updates back in the other direction, over a network.

VNC is platform-independent – a VNC viewer on one operating system may connect to a VNC server on the same or any other operating system. Multiple clients may connect to a VNC server at the same time. Popular uses for this technology include remote technical support and accessing files from a remote computer.

There are a number of variants of VNC which offer their own particular functionality. Many are compatible with VNC proper in the sense that a viewer of one flavour can connect with a server of another; others are based on VNC code but not compatible with standard VNC.

Networking home computers running different versions of Windows

After your physical network is set up, the next step is to fine-tune it so that all the computers can find each other—something you'll need if you want to share files and printers.

If computers running Windows XP are part of your network, it’s important to use the same workgroup name for all of the computers on your network.

Next, check the network location on all computers running Windows Vista or Windows 7. The network location is a setting that allows Windows to automatically adjust security and other settings based on the type of network that the computer is connected to.

If you are using a firewall other than Windows Firewall, you must open certain ports so that your computer can find other computers and devices that have files or printers that you want to share.

By changing your network location to Home or Work, network discovery is automatically turned on . You can also turn on these sharing options individually

In any version of Windows, you can right-click a file or folder, click Share, and then select the people or groups you want to share with. You can also assign permissions so that those people can or cannot make changes to the file or folder you shared.

The network map in Network and Sharing Center is a graphical view of the computers and devices on your network, showing how they're connected and including any problem areas. This can be helpful for troubleshooting. Before a computer running Windows XP can be detected and appear on the network map, you might need to install the Link-Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) protocol on that computer.
