Weezo, remote access and web server for Windows


Weezo is easy remote access. The server comes as a portable version or as an installer for the Windows operating system. It basically allows a user to configure remote access to files on a computer system and run scripts on a web server at the same time.

Here is how it works. Weezo will run a setup script on first start. The script will start the main services and perform connection checks to ensure that the server is accessible from a local network and the Internet.

A free Weezo account can be created during server setup. The account offers the advantage that a permanent URL is associated with it which allows access to the server. This is similar to a service that offers a permanent domain name for dynamic IPs. It is possible to use the program anonymously, but this means that users logged into the computer need the correct IP address to do so.

The Weezo server interface is then started on the computer, providing the means to configure shared content and users along with basic configuration options and an activity monitor that displays information about logged in users and changes. server status.

All stations around user groups and resources. Groups are used to allow or block access to resources. The administrator, for example, has access to all resources by default, unlike the public group.

Groups are password protected and can be further protected by adding authorized IP addresses. Options to provide a separate website theme, sounds, and sticky notes are also provided.

Resources are the heart of the server. Here it is possible to enable access and file sharing, blog and websites, communication modules like chat or webcam, bookmarks, web TV, web proxy to route traffic through the Weezo website and additional modules.

Here are some great resources:

  • Photo album: Share photos with anyone who connects to the server.
  • Music & Videos: Listen to music or watch videos remotely, great for sharing music and videos with friends.
  • RSS reader, bookmarks: easily access and share RSS feeds and bookmarks wherever you are

One-click install / download options are provided for popular web scripts like WordPress, Joomla, or phpBB, although they are not always offered in the latest version. MySQL can be installed as well as it is a requirement for many of the scripts.

Some modules were not fully translated into English, but only offered in French. WordPress for example was available in French. It was however not a problem to modify the configuration files on the local system to change the language to English. This is also the way to update scripts to their latest versions.

Administrators have direct access to MySQL, phpMyAdmin, Apache configuration, and pretty much all other server configuration files. Useful for example to import a database or make changes to the remote server.

The ports can be changed in the configuration, the default port is 80. It is also possible to use a secure connection (SSL) to connect to the server.

Weezo offers a one-click install server for web scripting, file sharing, and remote file access. It provides rights management and an easy-to-understand administration interface that can be used to configure most, but not all, server options.

Some operations require manual configuration changes, which will definitely be a problem for inexperienced users. For example, there is no option to update WordPress to the latest version from the admin interface.

Weezo is available for download from the developer’s website.
