How to connect Alfresco repo to Windows Explorer?

Jump to solution

Hello,

I would like to add files to Alfresco from Windows Explorer. Is there any way to achieve that?

I tried mapping to localhost:8080/alfresco/aos but it does not work.

A lot of docs says it is possible but none says how to achieve that..

I am using Alfresco 6.1.2 Community Edition

Regards,

Mike

PS. I have found these threads but the seem to be a bit outdated:

CmisSync Alfresco Desktop Sync

(OLD) Desktop Sync for Alfresco

EDIT. Or maybe I can somehow configure "Smart folders" in Alfresco to sync with Windows file-system?

EDIT2. Or maybe I can somehow use "Active directory" ?

No, I think you shouldn't use alfresco-content-services-file-transfer-receiver.

Try test connections in this way:

  1. From the client browser go to http://domainSmiley Tongueort/alfresco/aos/ It should ask credentials. Do you see Company Home content (Shared Files, User Homes, Sites, Imap Attachment...)? Yes, go to step 3.
  2. If don't, try http://domainSmiley Tongueort/alfresco/webdav/. WebDav works, so check AOS module deployment. If do not, check alfresco server configuration in point of webdav.
  3. If you can dive through repository structure by browser, so server is ok. Check windows client side. Windows use WebClient service to map webdav disk. Make sure it run. Troubleshooting WebDAV

p.s. For Windows Explorer it's important to use Microsoft-compliant WebDAV: alfresco/aos instead RFC-compliant WebDAV: alfresco/webdav

Alright, I will try to set up it again.

Should I have alfresco-content-services-file-transfer-receiver configured & installed?

Thank you very much!

I do not have AOS module deployed but I set up webdav (thank you @Sanjay Bandhniya) and everything is finally working!

I am using Windows 10, do you think I should consider downloading AOS module while webdav works perfectly fine right now? I would not use Microsoft Office anyway.

Regards,

Mike
