I’m looking at an application which will consist of a kiosk-style setup, including a gateway PC (windows) and an iPad running the Ignition Perspective app to control a mobile machine. Neither the PC nor the iPad will have internet access (or at any rate, I cannot guarantee it).
I want to display some PDF’s and some videos using the built in video player and PDF viewer components. As I have no internet connection, I can’t use files hosted online; they will have to be hosted by the gateway PC.
I know that I can use the Web Development module to create a file resource, but for this particular application, it’s a little cost prohibitive to pay for the functionality of a whole web development module, to then only use it for hosting a couple of videos and PDF’s.
Is there another way to locally host content, e.g. using apache or IIS?
