Remote File Access

Using any supported device with an Internet connection, you can securely access your ILR files from home or on the road, using Web Folders. The Web Folders service enables you to view, modify, delete, rename, upload and download your files. Most popular Internet browsers like Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome, Opera and Safari are supported. In addition, there are iOS and Android apps available in the Google Play and Apple stores. Search for "HTTP Commander" and install the free app, then use the instructions below to configure access to the server.
