[Q] How to create an intranet on Droid X?
How to create an intranet on Droid X or Android
Hi, I'm a newbie and hope this has not been asked before. I have transferred 20,000 + html files and some pdf files (consisting of primarily text) to my Droid X. They are stored in a folder on my SD card. I can locate the folder. However, all of the file managers require that the entire folder be read before I can even dream of opening one of the files in that folder for viewing.
After an interminable wait, I see all of the 20,000 plus files but cannot get to the one I want to open which links to the other files. In other words, I have 20,000 + files on my SD card that, effectively speaking, I can neither access nor view. This is a database of legal cases and statutes, etc. which I need for my work. I would love to be able to search for specific text as well but first things first. On my office and home computers, these files are conveniently linked by a html menu system (local html files) which permits easy and rapid access. I would like to re-create this menu system and the ease of use on my Droid X. Essentially, what I need is the ability to create a local intranet on my Droid X using one of the Droid browers (e.g. Dolphin, Opera, Galpagos, etc.)
I have tried the local webserver solution which is inadequate and too cumbersome. Obviously, the Android file managers are hopeless for this task.
If this problem cannot be solved, I am faced with two other undesirable situations. 1. I can
open an account on a cloud server and upload my files to it, which would probably permit me to access them by my Droid X the way that any web page on the Web can be accessed. The other solution is using a remote access type program to access my office or home computer to see the files. From previous experience with the latter option (using my office computer from my home computer), it is painfully slow. Since I have roughly 4 gigs of html data I want to access, I would prefer to avoid the (albeit minimal) expense of a subscription for use of a cloud.
Any advice which would permit me to quickly and efficiently access and view my html files on the Droid would be most appreciated. Free apps, if applicable, would be preferred, but I am getting desperate. I have tried webservers, eg I-Jetty, etc., and I have tried Astro File manager and similar apps. They do not even come close to what I want. I have learned that Android has forbidden this kind of access/viewing (the kind I need) due to security concerns.
Any apps? Any fixes? Workarounds?
Essentially, what I seek to do is transfer what is akin to an intranet on my office and home computers on my Droid X. Please offer any advice.
Thanks to one and all.
