I’m going to build small application (“project documentation management”) that has some small features:
- The user can connect to server to get documents in projects which he/she is employed.
+ Users maybe sit in LAN where Server in or connect to Server through internet.
- The application must authenticate and authorize users connected to Server like:
+ Normal users can only view and downoad document file (*.doc, *.pdf, *.xls, autocad file(*.dwg)), can’t upload file.
+ Serious users can view, download (then modifty file) and upload to replace the older version.
Anyone could point out which type application which I should build? Futher conpcepts and implement help me much. Thank!
I have never programming application running through Internet before! So I cannot distinguish between applicaton run base on IE or independent application like some FTP Softwares, which have cool similar features to my application(connect to server, view file, download...)
I got advice from friends that use VPNs and the Server will run Windows 2003 Server, but don't know right or wrong?
Very happy for any suggestion from you! Thank you!
