Is there any way to access NFS/CIFS shares via http?


Dear all,


Is there any way to give access to netapp NFS/CIFS share so that it can be access via http and be able to download and upload files. I dont even know if it is possible I was just wondering if anybody here has done this before and thinks its possible.





in 7 mode, the option "httpd.rootdir" specifies the complete pathname of the root directory that contains files and subdirectories for HTTP access. However, I am not sure if this allows the user to upload files via http. Alternatively, you may setup an http server locally on a windows or unix host, mount the netapp volume on that host and configure the web server to use those volumes.
