Using Web Folders
To View And Transfer Files!
Using Web Folders to view and transfer files, folders, and other information to
a Web server offers you a more secure computing experience which is something
you should always be looking for.
Web Folders transfer information over a network connection to a remote Web
server, but can use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to help protect
information as it is being transmitted. (It is not a requirement for Web Folders
to use SSL, but it is recommended.) Using SSL with Web Folders requires that the
Web server also supports SSL.
Web Folders also support Windows authentication (a method for helping to verify
the identity of a user), which can help protect your password when you are
logging on to a Web server that also supports Windows authentication.
- If a Web server supports the SSL protocol, the Internet address for the server
will begin with https:// instead of http://.
- It is recommended that you enable Windows Firewall when transferring files
using Web Folders. To open Windows Firewall, click Start, point to Settings,
click Control Panel, and then double-click Windows Firewall.
- A firewall helps protect your computer by preventing unauthorized users from
gaining access to it through a network or the Internet.
