Default HTTP_Server?

I'm happy to see the development of my favorite FTPD picking up again. I downloaded the latest version and I've been playing with it, and I just have a quick question.

I'm actually kind of interested in the HTTP_Server capabilities. I'm not sure if it fits in with the mindsets of your target audience, but I love the idea of being able to set up a secure web-based file server with a different VFS to do some light transfers for my less tech-savvy friends... you know, the kind who who couldn't set up a SSL Auth'd FTP client if their lives depended on it lol. The framework has been there for years, but is it actually going anywhere? As it stands now it seems like it's missing even the login script. Just curious. And thanks for the wonderful program.

HTTP is definitely not under active development... If someone wants to pick it up and work on it I'll provide what help I can. If you just want to serve files to a small group of people over HTTP you're probably better off setting up a number of other http servers..

On the other hand, you can create links to an anonymous ftp account, or even a regular account you only give download rights to, and post fully qualified ftp:\\ links that login to that account to access the files. Or point to directories and users can pick files. I've done that and it works fine, though I don't believe you can do that over SSL like you could with a real FTP client... Not really serving files over HTTP which is useful to get around firewalls, but it does allow you to put links to stuff on the FTP on a regular webpage you can direct your friends to
