What is HTTP Commander?

HTTP Commander is a web based file management solution hosted on your own server. It provides a basic functionality for working with files (creating, coping, deleting, etc.) and many other additional features such as the integration with cloud services, editing Office documents online directly in your browser, tags, comments, and more.

It's ideal for the integration into an existing Active Directory Structure, since you can use your existing user base, existing network shares and NTFS permissions.

It also can be used without an AD, so users can register themselves, administrators can manage the users directly within the application.

Here are some problems solved by HTTP Commander:
  • You have existing files in your internal network and you need to provide some users with the ability to access them externally in a simple and secure way without the installation of any additional software on the client's side and keep files physically in your internal network.
  • You need to organize simple and secure way for folders/files management for your users with the ability to set different permissions for different users/groups.
  • You need to allow users editing office documents directly in a browser without installation of any additional software.
HTTP Commander is hosted on your own server. You pay for the license only once and there are no recurring payments.
You save up to 10 times compared to the cloud services.
