HFS (HTTP File Server) is a great tool for sharing files on any device with a web browser. Just setup the program, add files and folders via drag and drop, and connect to the web address. The web view is an easy-to-navigate page that provides search, a variety of view options, and even the capability to download files and folders in a single archive (TAR format).

Other features include user controls, uploading, speed limits, transfer logs, "expert" view, and IP bans. Note that to make the program available over the internet, a dynamic DNS-type service may be necessary.

Functional in Linux under WINE.

System Requirements: WinAll / Wine
Writes settings to: Application folder

FYI, in the stunnel forum topic there's some additional tools for easy configuring HFS (http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=21551).

Great little program but there is plenty to be desired, for example there's no sign out.

After discovering this little tool a little while ago, it's became a hit among my friends and myself. It's completely invaluable to transferring files on the same network when you forget your flash drive and transferring large files. Genius!

Amazing program. Great if you need to quickly share files either over a LAN (if you can't be bothered with MS file sharing) or over the internet (file too big to email). Not designed so much for industrial web serving applications like Apache, but it is very simple to use, making it ideal for file sharing.

Small, little configuration needed, supports uploads and passwords, can create virtual file systems (drag and drop files from any location), making it easier to manage than having to drop files into an "htdocs" location in a normal server.

Better than FTP as it doesn't randomly use every port possible, making it friendlier to routers.

It was a godsend.

Nice prg. works fine behind my D-Link router. However it seems not capable of uploading with speeds over app. 300 kb/sec. I have a 25/25 Mbit connection. Suggestions anyone???

Been using this since before v2 and love its drag-n-drop feature. Stupidly, I only just discovered it has an Upload feature as well. It's gonna replace my FTP server now! The admin should really add in this Upload capability into the description above as it's extremely useful in file swapping!
