I am setting up a MicroServer with Windows Home Server 2011 running as a file server at my home (local area network).
On my old file server, I was able to scan documents at my Brother MFC and send them directly to a the user's folder on the file-server via FTP.
WHS 2011 is proving a little more challenging to setup. Could someone please help with how to configure WHS2011?
I've seen the youtube video by Mike on setting up WHS 2011 and FTP, but it only enables one central storage folder, rather than sending scanned documents to a user's individual folder.
any help much appreciated.
I'm trying to set up FTP on my WHS 2011 box. Actually, I tried FileZilla Server but I just could not get it to work. So I enabled FTP through IIS in WHS and it is working, I'm able to access it via a browser, FileZilla client, and from my scanner.
The questions I have are these:
Can I have several directories or folders on one FTP server? In other words, lets say I want to have folders for receipts, auto service records, etc, is that possible? Would I create additional folders in the root FTP folder?
Perhaps to better understand, here is what I want to do and I want to know if a) can it be done and how so?
I have a networked Brother MFC. It is located in an out of the way area and whenever I want to scan something, I have to walk to the MFC, insert the documents in the machine, walk back to my computer then scan the documents. Now if I want to scan a lot of documents, this gets tiring. My Brother MFC can scan to FTP so ideally I'd go to the machine with my various documents and scan them all to my WHS via FTP using the Brother's control panel to route them to the appropriate folders or shares. Right now I've got the Brother configured to scan to FTP to my WHS but everything ends up in one folder.
Does that make sense or is there a stupidly simple and better way to accomplish what I want? I'm open to suggestions to something other than FTP. I know some of you use something else for document management but I can't remember what it is.
