Quick HTTP server

If you need to pull files from a linux box.  This handy python command will turn on a temporary HTTP server listening on port 8000


cd to directory you want to pull files from and type:

python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000


Lasts only until you kill the process with Crtl-C

Make sure you have firewall open to allow access to port 8000
