Cwfm (Comet WebFileManager) is simply a web file manager.
I started this project to solve a typical 'intranet problem'. Non-skilled users want to exchange files from servers connected by wan or Internet link. Ftp is not suitable for this task 'cause its scarce user-friendlyness. Normal smb connections are impraticable over Internet due to security problems and slowness. The users are generally already able to use a web browser. All these considerations have carried me to one direction: a web application reachable from everywhere with the http protocol. Of course I started with security in mind. If anyone can connect to your server disks it's important to avoid any possible unauthorized access. Cwfm is constituted by a set of php scripts that perform user authentication (using php sessions) and a subset of a typical file manager features.
