Get Local Files on Remote server

Advertisement

Hello,
We have a project where each computer in our office will have
different files in a folder on their local computer named
C:\Scanned. We would like to keep up with what is in each directory
and put it in the database on the remote server. We have it all
working on a single local machine but on the server we cannot
access a folder on the connecting pc. We also don't want to install
coldfusion on every one of the machines just to access the local
directory for each of them.
Is there a way to use cfdirectory to view a local directory
on the persons pc but not on the server?
<cfdirectory directory="C:\Scanned\" action="list"
name="myImages" sort="name ASC" recurse="yes">
If there is no way to do it cfdirectory please let me know
how it can be done.
Thanks,
Andrew

Thank goodness. Just imagine what could happen if any website
you
visited could just start snooping around the file system of
your local,
client PC. Scary stuff that.

*IF* all the client PC's are on a well defined local|wide
area network.
And you want to create a domain user that can read all the
file
systems on all these computers. Then ColdFusion can be
configured to
run under that user. It would then have access to the desire
directories.
You would use UNC paths in the <cfdirectory...> tag,
which means you
will have to know the machine names of all these PCs and it
would look
like:
<cfdirectory
directory="\\{machineName}\c$\Scanned\"...>
But this is really not the job for a Web Application Server.
