The Everything ETP/FTP server allows you to search and access your files from an Everything client or FTP client.
To start an ETP/FTP server:
Please make sure you share each drive on your server as its drive letter.
For example, share C: drive as: C
This will be customizable in a future release of "Everything".
To connect to an ETP server:
There are four link types that change the way the Everything client accesses files on the ETP server.
When connecting to an ETP server you can specify the link type.
|C:||No change, the paths are the same as they are on the server. This is useful if you index a subst'ed drive on the server and are using mapped network drives on the client.|
|\\Server\C||Use Windows shares (this is the default link type). By default these shares do not exist, you will need to create them on the server if you wish to use this method.|
|\\Server\C$||Use the default admin drive shares.|
|ftp://host/C:||Use ftp links.|
To change the ETP/FTP server username and password:
To disable ETP/FTP file downloading:
To index different NTFS volumes for the ETP server, see Multiple Instances.
Everything works best if you share each drive as a single letter, for example, share your C: drive as C, D: drive as D and so on.
To create a windows share for a single folder, please follow the guide below:
For example, we want to host an ETP/FTP server for one folder:
Substitute a drive letter for the local folder c:\share:
subst H: c:\share
Setup an index to include only the H: drive.
Add a share name to c:\share
Connect to the ETP/FTP server with \\Server\C links.
Every file and folder indexed by Everything can be searched and downloaded via the ETP server.
To disable file downloading:
Unable to start ETP server: bind failed 10048
Please make sure no FTP servers are already running on port 21 or use a different ETP server port.
To change the ETP server port:
Please match the same port number when connecting to the ETP server.
