Reliable File Hosting and Sharing via HTTP File Server

HTTP File Server (HFS) is an easy-to-use drag-and-drop file server for private file sharing. You can use HFS (HTTP File Server) to send and receive files.

It’s different from basic file-sharing as a result it makes use of web technology to be more suitable with right this moment’s Internet. Access your remote files, over the network.

It runs as a standalone executable and doesn’t require any installation. The software may be very simple to use, simply drag a file into it to share it with the world.

You can customize the port it’s running on, specify the IP address, and monitor connections from the tray icon. HFS presents the shared files on an easy HTML page, that includes the file name and size.

This application also can integrate into Windows Explorer, allowing you to simply share files from the right-click menu. With some HTML data, you’ll be able to customize the HTML template to fulfill your desire. It has been efficiently examined with Wine under Linux.

HFS Features:

  • DOWNLOAD and upload
  • Virtual file system
  • Highly customizable
  • HTML template
  • Bandwidth control
  • Easy/Expert mode
  • Log
  • Full control over connections
  • Accounts
  • Dynamic DNS updater

HTTP File Server version 0.4xx is a full rewrite of the Delphi version

  • It’s a server software, that shares files fresh from your disk. Don’t rely on services, be independent!
  • It’s all very fast. Try downloading Zipping 100GB, it starts immediately!
  • Easy to use. HFS tries to detect problems and suggest solutions.
  • Share even a single file with our virtual file system, even with a different name, all without touching the real file. Present things the way you want!
  • Watch all activities in real-time.
  • Control bandwidth, and decide how much to give.

  • better ipv6 support
  • admin/options: new “listen interface”

Why you should upgrade from HFS 2.x to 3:

As you can see from the list of features, we already have some goods that you cannot find in HFS 2. Other than that, you can also consider:

  • it’s more robust: it was designed to be an always-running server, while HFS 1-2 was designed for occasional usage (transfer and quit)
  • passwords are never really stored, just a non-reversible hash is
  • more flexible permissions

But you may still want to stay with HFS 2.x (so far) for the following reasons

  • smaller
  • more tested
  • classic window interface (can be easier for some people)

Working on Windows, Wine/Linux.
