I am trying out Novell iFolder 3.0 installed on Linux SUSE server. Is there a way to have the information un-encrypted on the linux server.  I want to be able to browse the data on the server rather than seeing the simas lock in the ifolder/data directory.

No.

That's one of the features of iFolder.  It's secure.

I think, however, if you install the iFolder client on the server, you can use that to access the iFolder info.  I could be wrong, but it's worth exploring.

I guess my main concern is that I want to see the physical files and folders on the linux server.  I want the clients to have to login remotely to sync. and to see the files via. the web browser.

Based purely on what I've seen with iFolder on NetWare 6.0, all you get to see is folders with numbered folder names and files with numbers for names within those numbered folders...  is that what you want to see?

As ShineOn says, security is a very big part of iFolder. No, you can't rummage around user data files, they are deliberately stored in an encrypted form to prevent casual perusal.

Thanks for the help, I will install the client and access the files that way.
