HFS is a open source program written in Delphi. HFS let you create a webserver for sharing files in a fast and easy way. HFS is a lightweight program, only 550 KByte in size.
I use this program very often because I think that programs like MSN are very slow for sending big files, so I just start up a HFS server instead. Click the HFS program file and you’re up and running. You don’t even need to install the program! When you have HFS up and running this is what you should see something like this:
You can use HFS (HTTP File Server) to send and receive files.
It’s different from classic file sharing because it uses web technology to be more compatible with today’s Internet.
It also differs from classic web servers because
it’s very easy to use and runs “right out-of-the box”.
Access your remote files, over the network.
Now you wonder how the server looks in a browser?
Well here it is, this is the standard theme, but it is possible to change this. Or you might just send a direct link to the file you want to share and the person downloading the file will never see it.
Some other nice features of HFS are:
- Password protecting files/folders
- Dynamic DNS updater
- Self test
- Download and upload
- Full control over connections
- Bandwidth control
Note: To run HFS in Linux you will need to use Wine
