How to transfer files to iSilo™ for iPhone OS on Windows Vista


These instructions show you how to transfer a document file to your iPhone/iPod touch so that you can view the document with iSilo™ for iPhone OS.

The iPhone and iPod touch devices do not have built-in general file transfer capabilities, so each third-party application that requires access to external files is solely responsible for implementing its own file transfer mechanism.

In the initial version of iSilo™ for iPhone OS, you transfer document files to your device by downloading them from a web server. This means that you must first upload your files to a web server and then use iSilo™ on your device to download the files from the web server to your device. Future updates to iSilo™ for iPhone OS are expected to provide additional flexibility.

The following step-by-step instructions use the built-in web server available on Windows Vista Premium and Windows Vista Ultimate. The instructions will not work for Windows Vista Home. This means that in order to use these instructions, you must have either a system running Windows Vista Premium or a system running Windows Vista Ultimate. If the built-in web server of your system is not yet enabled, you must also have the access rights to modify the system settings (e.g., have access to the administrator account for the system).

In addition, these instructions assume you have iSilo™ installed on your iPhone or iPod touch device.

Note that the images shown here may differ from your particular setup depending on the version of iSilo™ you have installed and the version of Windows Vista on your system, but the instructions are pretty much the same. The screenshots in this article were taken on a system running Windows Vista Premium.


  1. The first thing we must do is make sure that Internet Information Services is installed and turned on. Internet Information Services is the set of services and programs with the built-in web server functionality. To do so, go to the Start menu and click Control Panel.
