personal file sharing server HFS - HTTP File Server 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. Copyright Snapfiles.com

One file wonder ! 5 stars by aec007 Oct 11, 2010 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I've tried many FTP server programs before with little success having to go through my own router firewall. Setting services, ports, IP addresses, routing mac addresses... a "Nightmare" to make everything together. Often finished uninstalling everything since I could not make it work no matter what I did with little or no guidance. THIS is a "one file wonder" piece of software. Only one file to run when you want to share. A "virtual file system" to share documents so I do not need to setup locations is my drives, etc like all other FTP programs require.... AND well thought out help file wiki on the web that helped me punch through all the firewalls and routers. It just works...! Now I can send big files (100+ MBs) like videos of the kids to grandpa without having to upload to websites with file size limitations. show Review details
No complaints - no hassles 5 stars by spelingchampeon Apr 24, 2010 (Read all my 6 reviews)
I have experimented with a few free FTP programs, and while you cant argue with FREE, it usually comes with a price...time spent on trying to fix minor issues. One of the things I wanted to accomplish was running a FTP server with minimal use, and on a Linux machine. A co-worker told me about this neat little FREE program that I had up and running in less than an hour (all folders built and permissions set), and thats not like me. I had already reviewed another FTP program here, and while I did like it, there were issues with some people logging in (mostly remote OS issues), so I started looking for an alternative answer. The only downside to HFS is it's security, but thats not the program itself, its the nature of the HTTP beast (they do recommend a program to beef up security through SSH, but I'm using it in Linux via WINE). show Review details
