Hello, first post here...

Let me tell you what I'd like to do, and maybe ya'll can help determine if it is possible.

I would like to host images/documents/videos on a server, and have people in my office be able to remotely browse, upload, and download them. Everyone around the office loves the OSx finder, and thats kind of what I was looking for...something with the finder interface that is remotely browsable by multiple users at the same time.

Any ideas? What would I need to make this happen?
QUOTE Thanks

If you have a standard server then it will look different depending on the client browsing it.

If you want to set up a skinned web based file exchange system, and you have a server that is running PHP, you could use Mollify. Its browser based but looks a bit Mac like, and once set-up any registered users can browse and exchange files from anywhere
