The principle is quite simple, the Joomla 1.5 module lists all the files in a folder of your choice. You decide which file types to your guests and are to be displayed for your user registrants.
You could, for example, on your intranet, the “normal” user, for example, only the PDF files can show that Users can also see the original Office documents. The module of course works both as WAMP web server on Windows as well as a host and all the other host’s such as LAMP with Apache and PHP, SQL, Unix, etc.
