This program grew from a test program for the CSocket OPX; it really needs to be completely rewritten to make it a bit more robust. The WebServer allows the Psion 5's file store to be browsed using an ordinary web browser.

You can check that it is running OK by using the Psion Message Suite web browser and connect to You should be presented with a page that lists the drives available on your psion.

If your Psion 5 is connected to a network via a PPP link (e.g. when you have established a connection to another system using the Message Suite web browser) then your Psion 5 can be viewed by using a web browser from remote systems provided they know the name/IP address of your Psion 5.

Note: The Psion 5 WebServer does not itself establish the PPP link to remote systems - it just listens for incoming connections.

The source for the Psion 5 WebServer is available from the download area.

It requires that the COPX suite version 1.0 to be installed.
