I want to create a WiFi Hotspot that can only access either a few files on my Android or a webpage run on my Android. This is so that when I am playing at gigs i can offer my music for free to people who connect. I know I can do this on a Windows machine but don't really want to drag around a laptop to every gig considering the amount of instruments, etc., that need to be transported.

I was hoping I could just set up a WiFi Hotspot and a walled garden so that when people connected it would force them to a page stating there is no internet connection only news and music by my band.

Has anyone got any ideas how this could be achieved or if I am being blind and there's an app that will already do it? (I have spent the last 3 days researching but so far I have not found much.)

  • Wi-Fi hotspot just gives you networking service. It doesn't automatically share your files. You need to use a kind of file server which could restrict sharing to few files.

You might like to try KWS Android Web Server

This is like LAMP, XAMPP, WAMP but for Android

This is not a simple file server, you need to create a webpage first to make it work.
