mWFViewer stands for methodica Web File Viewer.
It supports viewing text file (e.g. log file) contents over the Internet or within an Intranet.
The product is installed on a machine running a web server. Therefore, it can be used from anywhere by anyone having access to the web server.
The web server must support PHP. The files to be viewed must be accessible by the web server.
mWFViewer is free software. So you do not have to pay for it.
The software is released as source code. So you may convince yourself of the fact that it does not contain any harmful code. It may "phone home" to check for a new version. You can switch this feature off. In the Tonido Application this feature is disabled at all.
Although it is free software mWFViewer is a copyrighted product.
