Quite a useful quick solution, to access your data remotely without the need for a special client.

As it does not support SSL natively, it should be configured to use a custom port. If a webserver is installed, allow to proxy traffic to fileserver, so SSL via webserver is possible: https://github.com/filebrowser/filebrowser/issues/431

here it is GitHub - browsefile/backend: Browse files through web interface, or webdav from explorer, advanced analog of SMB for SBC or routers fork with:

This could come in handy :slight_smile:

If you end up implementing it, you could update the openvpn instructions to use this tool instead of a server share seems more practical :sunglasses:

Currently in Beta with release on 2021-09-18 :slight_smile:.

Which file I should download for Raspberry Pi 4B?

depends on your architecture / image you are running. ARMv6 / 7 / 8


Go to https://github.com/browsefile/backend/releases and download the latest “linux-armv6-bf.tar.gz” below “Assets”. ARMv6 btw means RPi 1 and Zero models only, else it’s ARMv7 at least :wink:.
