Mobile Web Server is the light tool to automatically create publicly (and locally) available internet site within several minutes from regular files stored in a folder (or a folder hierarchy) directly located on your portable USB device or on PocketPC, SmartPhone, Communicator.

Mobile Web Server automatically generates the site, the navigation menu and provides you with permanent/symbolic the server can be accessed via. The server does not require any special configuration. The only operation you should perform is to create a folder and put the files, which you would like the site will be created from, in the folder. So, the entire site creation is reduced to simple file copy operations.

Your personal Mobile Web Server allows worldwide Web access to pictures, music and other files stored on USB flash, iPod, PocketPC, Smartphone or in a directory of your hard disk. Automatically on-the-fly creates web sites from separate files with auto-generated site navigation menus and picture thumbnails, supports web templates. Allows the site visitors to determine the server position on the map via GPS.

Secure Pages
1. Hiding Pages
Mobile Web Server includes many predefined pages mostly as samples, but some of the pages are already real and practical. As Mobile Web Server is the server and provides with information all the visitors, site owners may want to hide some information from worldwide availability.

2. Password protection (Plus version only)
Mobile Web Server offers password protection to provide selected information to trusted visitors only. A directory at any level (but at each directory level separately) can be protected by passwords.

1. FindMe
If your desktop computer, laptop or Windows Mobile device running MobileWebServer has embedded or external GPS receiver connected, any your mobile site visitor can determine the server location on the map. So, the answer to the popular question "Where are you" is simple - visit FindMe page of my site and watch me over the internet.

2. How it works
MobileWebServer finds GPS hardware automatically starting from the first attempt of the access to serverRoot/FindMe/index.html

3. TraceMe
The pages behave as FindMe but store your movement history. Mobile Web Server stores you last several significant movements and shows when/where you were on the map.

4. NearMe
Using your GPS coordinates and the coordinates of other Mobile Web Server users with the pages allowed, you can find the servers near (about 1 mile) you, visit the sites, read/post to the site's blogs and communicate with the neighbors via the web.

5. How to hide my GEO position
To hide your GEO position from the site visitors you have to simply delete the index.html file and (optionally) FindMe/TraceMe/NearMe directories.

Remote Screenshot
Mobile Web Server allows you to show current screenshot to any of your visitors. Probably the best way to secure you screenshot is using a password. ScreenShot demo page shows you a sample.

Blog in the Pocket
Mobile Web Server allows creating a simple Blog running directly on your portable or mobile device. "Blog" directory shows you the sample. You can create any number of Blogs. To add new Blog just create a .txt (regular plain text) file in "Blog" directory.

Remote Control
Mobile Web Server allows you to control Windows Media Player or Windows Media Centre remotely. "RemoteControl" pages show you how. If you are running the player on a distant machine with Mobile Web Server installed/running, you can control the player remotely by visiting the server via the web.
