What's the best way to share between 2 people?

Postby Laythstag » Sun Jan 21, 2007 9:06 pm

My dorm has a firewall that blocks Bitorrent and Emule. So my dad is going to download and send the files(300MB-1.5GB) to me. I've tried various Skype plugins(really slow), Mirc(no connection) and Diino.com(Really Really slow). I just want to know if there is a better way.

FTP is known to thrive in such circumstances.

HFS file server is great! http://www.snapfiles.com/screenshots/hfs.htm


Just PM your friends the Http link and they can grab your files!


Http File Server (HFS) is an easy to use drag and drop file server for personal file sharing. It runs as a standalone executable and does not require any installation. The program is very easy to use, just drag a file into it to share it with the world. You can customize the port it is running on, specify the IP address and monitor connections from the tray icon. HFS presents the shared files on a simple HTML page, that includes the file name and size. With some HTML knowledge, you can completely customize the HTML template to meet your preference. HFS can also integrate into Windows Explorer, allowing you to easily share files from the right-click menu.

I would go with WASTE... I used to use it and its very secure, pretty much bullet proof in fact..

Another option is to see if Hamachi works through your school's firewall. It does through mine, Hamachi creates a VPN, and through that you can setup your own DC++ hub and download from your dad that way.. The Hamachi / DC++ setup would allow you to connect to more than just your dad really, you can have a little over a dozen people on the free version of Hamachi..

Bottom line though, if just connecting to your dad is your plan than go with WASTE.

300mb to 1.5gig limited by your fathers upload speed (which is likely to suck) will take a long time.

I recommend the good old CDR/DVDR, sent via the postal system :)

For two people security is not that important so waste is a waste, lol


Trust me, everyone I know who uses HFS will accept no less! Its so very, very simple and fantastic. Everyone should try it.


Where is Napho when you need back-up?

Just use HFS. You don't need a large p2p program for simple sharing. You can password protect with HFS if you want. Mel_Smiley_VIP thinks HFS deserves a sticky thread.

Alliance is like WASTE but much easier to use. It's fast and secure.

1. Install Alliance on both ends
2. Send a connection code from one installation to the other (there's a wizard in alliance for this).

That's about all there's to it. If one of the computers is behind a firewall then send the connection code from the other computer.
