    Any news of a samba server ?

    Would be good to access the filesystem straight from within IE on windows.

    It's entirely possible but you'd only be able to access the sandbox owned by the app, not any part of the rest of the system. Not sure how useful that would be.

    I experimented with a SMB server. I don't think it's possible because the SMB protocol requires use of the lower-numbered port 445 and for completeness ports 137-139. On any BSD system only the root user (not the user that runs the iPhone apps) can expose ports below 1024.
