first, sorry for my bad english but i'm french
I'm using totaly Ubuntu Dapper for 4 months, and Wine 0.9.9
I would like to submit you a very usefull software for windows and who
doesn't work with Wine : it's Http File Server ( or HFS for close friends :D
The HFS developer knows that HFS doesn't work with Wine, but doesn't know
why, so we need your help :D
A little description for this wonderfull software on the official Website :
"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".
( http://www.rejetto.com/hfs/ )
How does it works : you open HFS, you drag and drop file on the windows, and
you obtain a http link such as : http://yourip/name_of_the_file.extension (
an example on the official website : http://www.rejetto.com/hfs/?f=ss&id=2)
then, you give this link to a friend, he opens the link with his webbrowser
and download immediatly from your computer !!! (you need to keep HFS opended
during the transfer, because this is HFS who manages upload ;) ). No ftp
server, no upload on temporary server !! This is the easier way to send a
file to somebody else.
Then, you can share folders, you give the link
http://yourip/name_of_the_folder/ and he can browse the folder and take what
he wants !!! you can also put password for files, restrict access to one IP,
you can create individual virtual folders for each people etc......)
this soft is perfekt !!! but doesn't work with Wine
HFS is open source, makes 500 ko and doesn't need any installation : it's a
So, I think I have said all for this soft
Please give me an answer for my mail, because it makes one month I'm looking
for help to make this soft works on linux : I asked on HFS official website,
on Ubuntu forum, on Developperz forum ( I thought that somebody could, with
sources, make it run, but no :( )
so a little mail : "yes it's possible" or "no, we can't make it run with
wine" would be very nice !!
but please, give me a "yes" answer :D
good luck for your future work ;)
