Looking for help on a computer question - March 13, 2006, 10:14 AM

Hello all,

I am trying to create a text file that lists all the files in a folder and its subfolders. I know you can do this in DOS easily if the folder resides on your machine. However, this folder is on a IPE website which I can only open in a http web folder. How do I navigate to this folder in DOS (I am unable to map a network drive for some reason, my guess is because it is an http file server).

Any ideas?

Thanks for the help.

Matt - Like I told you over inter-office IM...I don't know. Post up on DCSBN.....Oh, uh, nevermind.

In all seriousness, I'm currently googling answers and asking people MUCH smarter than me this question...I'll see what I can dig up.

Shrug... no real good way. You can't map a drive to a HTTP resource AFAIK.

Use something like wget with its "mirror" and "spider" capabilities... that will follow links on the file server.

Or write a perl script.

need more info.

are you on DOS only machine? If not, and assuming your on Win 2000/XP you can try to connect to the Web Folder by mapping to that HTTP folder. You're going to need a user name and password.

just right click on your Net Neighborhood, Map Net Drive, Web Folder/FTP

now if all you have is DOS - disregard and call somebody else.

I'm on an XP machine. The info I found in Google gives a way of doing it quickly through DOS.

For some reason I cannot map to the http folder. The connect button is grayed out when I select that particular folder from my Net Neighborhood.

I don't think I know enough about the hosting of the page to telnet or ftp in. It is an VCE (Virtual Capture Environment) and I don't think I have the proper high level permissions needed for it.

That is what I was worried it would come down to. The old document that I am updating has 1485 files within hundreds of folders.

Any other ideas? Unfortunately the is already at the bottom of the hill -- so it can't roll down any farther.

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha - This is Lockheed Martin we're talking about here. The dude that did this probably left 2 weeks after to get more money. Now the task has rolled down the hill to someone low on the totem pole.
