    hello,
    i live in a studenthome with 1000+ computers, most of them have files shared via samba and ftp.
    i'd like to make a list of the files shared and make some kind of search possibility in this list.
    i wonder if there is an open source solution for this task.

    thanks in advice for your ideas.

    You want this list to be online, right? You could probably use PHP with XML or maybe with mySQL. But you should look forward to the days your gonna spend just putting all the files in the XML page or the database... That's gonna take a long time...

    Your best bet would be to get something that's already available for doing just that.

    Tools like WinMX and Xnap have server software that allows peer-to-peer networking, with indexing, browsing, and searching tools.
