This program purpose is twofold: hosting private virtual (a.k.a cloud) servers not visible to the general public; and as a free replacement for paid tethering apps. Currently, only limited functionality of the first portion is implemented.

This is still a pre-alpha, and the code base is messy, so don't judge me for errors. It can communicate using HTTP identity on the same IP address. (Meaning that you have to use a virtual machine which can be configured to use the same ip address). To my knowledge, no changes occur to the external network.

Disclaimer: I may not be held liable for anything that occurs as a result of using this program.

To start the server, open a terminal on host (for linux, commands will vary slightly on windows):
Code:
cd /directory/to/extraction
sudo java entry -p port -f /absolute/directory/to/root/folder/ [-d default_page]

Most messages will be prepended with [Err ], [Dbug], or [Info]

Please send me information of problems with the program, including the log.

Planned future changes:
Enabling access to server from outside current ip address.
Adding a logfile.
Adding scripting support (PHP, others?)
Adding Database support (language?)
Making opensource

Hi, m12. What is this? I see a zip file full of Java files, but that doesn't reveal much.

It's in reference to viewtopic.php?p=224765#p224765
I didn't consider it appropriate in the OS Development subforum, though.

It would help for everybody in the future to be able to see what this does based on the top post alone. It doesn't need to be a huge description but not having a description at all is just going to confuse everyone.

It's a lot easier to write a program in java than c/c++, and since I only needed 2 to 3 connections, java is sufficient.
