Network file access?

I have two related network file access questions, since I didn't see any related info about how to do this here, so far.

 

Is there a PB solution for directly accessing files on my network? I have a wireless router and the PB is also wireless, but I can't seem to find a way of directly accessing files on my network access storage box.

 

Also, can any browser that runs on the PB access web pages on the PB itself?

 

I create my own web pages and want to load them off the PB's storage, but none of the browsers seem to have a load page command.

Re: Network file access?

Hello ddalley

 

If you are using Windows on one of the computers connected to the same network and the Playbook's WiFi Sharing is ON, you can pull up an  explorer and type file://192.168.1.x - ip address of Playbook to your home network.

 

You may also wanna download Air Browser thru the Blackberry App World. It works like a Windows Explorer for your Playbook. Please let us know if this helps.

 

 

Goodluck

 

Ron

Re: Network file access?

Thanks, Ron!

 

I have installed it, but haven't used it yet. It sounds like it will do the job.

 

Anyone have thoughts about loading of local HTML files?

Re: Network file access?

So far, I have not found a way to access my network files through the PlayBook.

 

There is an FTP program that I will have to try next.
