Let’s say you want to allow someone access to files quickly via a web browser on your machine. You can do that with the help of python. All you do is change into the directory you want to serve up and then run the command:
python -m SimpleHTTPServer
Now, whoever needs to view that page simply points their browser to http://ADDRESS_OF_MACHINE:8000
Where ADDRESS_OF_MACHINE is either the IP Address or Domain of the machine (whichever applies). The user will then be able to navigate the files and folders within the directory you are serving up.
