  • HTTP / HTTPS support pls?

    Hi, is there a way of usng an http / https website as a source of folders? Instead of an FTP site, we have something like a bare apache webserver hosting a filesystem over https. It looks like this in a browser:
    ------------------------------------- - /somefolder/xyz

    [link: To Parent Directory]

    The parent directory and subdirectories are links which take you to similar looking pages; the files are links to download the files.

    Is there any way of getting BC to pick that up as an https client, and interpret it as a folder structure, so that it can be compared with a local folder structure?

    There are a bunch of firewalls etc in place so we can't get to this server via SFTP, only via https.

    Many thanks.

    BC3 does not support loading a folder via HTTP or HTTPS. We can load a specific file in the file viewers, but not an entire folder structure. The only workaround available would be to allow SFTP connections to BC3 Pro (or FTP to BC3 Std).
