While I love the prospect of this software, this will leave your PC open to access from the internet. If that thought alone doesn't scare you, then you aren't living under the reality of today's internet. Maybe a little reading up on just how many devices and pieces of software in the world are falling prey to hacking, and just how easily it is being done, might change your mind.

One slight over-site in the programming of this software, or a flaw in any of the third party modules this software might use, and it's game over for you and EVERY device on your network. With the way things are getting hacked these days, I think I'm going to have to pass on this. Thanks for the offer anyway!

FeMaster, You aren't wrong, and it's wise to be concerned. The cheap Chinese security cameras are also a big risk, especially if people stick with the default username/passwords as these are basic web servers too, with access to your network, and run a small version of Linux.
People can take precautions though, eg, make the ports the software uses to be random and not just 8080 or similar, and use a secure username / password.
Ensuring the software is kept up to date is also a must ... so if you use this software, its worth taking up the offer for lifetime updates.

I have a WD Home Drive which I, or 'selected friends' can access from almost anywhere in the world.
This program 'appears' to have a similar function, except you don't need to buy the physical drive.
Looks like an interesting program.....will play with it for awhile.

I've been using Teamviewer for this kind of thing for so many years that I finally bought a license. How does this compare to it? I feel pretty lame asking this. I'm pretty sure it's apples to oranges.

Teamviewer is primarily to remote control another computer, with the 'added bonus' of being able to transfer files to that one connection. This software is about hosting files so that one or more people can access them. So the advantage is that multiple people can access these files, not just one, and at any time - you don't have to connect to them first to initiate the transfer.

This looks like a really cool program. But it should have something to help you configure your router to work properly. There are some instructions in a help file, but it is not easy to get the information out, and it is very complicated. I won't delete it just yet, but it looks like you will need to spend a lot of time to get it to work. Right now I am just not willing to go through it all.

Its not overly complicated, but you do need to know what an IP address is. You access the Internet via your router which has an IP address as far as the 'outside world' is concerned, while your PC (and other kit in your house) have internal IP addresses. So you just need to tell your router, "If anyone connects to you remotely, you don't know what to do with it, so just pass it on to that PC over there". This is where a 'port' then comes into it. Think of that as a marker to identify WHY you want to connect remotely. Access a web server? Thats usually port 80. Access an FTP server? Thats usually port 21. Send an email? Thats usually port 25. So lets pick a number of 8965. Its best to make it quite random, just to keep out people you don't want to connect...
So now you tell your router, "if anyone connects on port 8965 (to use 1AVShare) send it to my main PC (which has the 1AVShare software on it, listening and ready...)
Its slightly more complex, as 1AVShare might be listening on port 2000, but that's fine - so long as you tell the router that its listening on port 8965 (to receive) and sending out on port 2000 (to your PC).

I've confused you more now, haven't I....

Maybe a good app for professional people.

For simple file exchange with your relatives, there are good free solutions.

A french one Smash for example :

- Free
- No size limit
- Many files together
- Preview of files
- Files available seven days

https://fromsmash.com/

Apps for iOS and Android are available.

If you trust better in Swiss services, you can try

https://www.swisstransfer.com/

WeTransfer is also free (for files up to 2 GB)
The downside though is that you have to upload the files first, and after X days, the files are deleted.
With this software, you can have access to your whole server instantly. Useful if you're away and want to watch a film, for example, or access a file you didn't upload.

Spontz,
Spontz, you can't really trust anyone or any company.
In the early days of encryption a swiss company provided a high quality encryption service to business and government. It was used for gov to gov etc by many countries. It only came out this year that the cia secretly purchased the company in the 70s or 80s and installed backdoor access to monitor all coms. They had access to gov and business secret coms for all this time! Unless you strongly encrypt all your content with software on your own pc u know is not hacked, and upload /transfer this way, you are not secure.

I am a past user of 1AVShare, back when I was a working geek. A very good program to have if you travel and don't trust the big boys and what they gleam from your files (that would be me). I still use 1AVCenter, or more directly my daughter does to keep an eye on things around here and I've been known to use it to snatch some audio here and there. I'm going to download this version of 1AVShare without fear and play and that will be on an old XPsp3 computer.

WaveThemes, I think the word you meant was "glean" not "gleam". Maybe it was a typo.

I always worry about back door access to my computers from software like this and stopped installing this kind of Internet access software long time ago.

As Ros commented, 1AVShare 1.7.9 is probably a good program but I just use Dropbox by creating a directory to upload files to and give direct access to those of my choice.

Reply   |   Comment by Tester  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Tester, Just don't forget that Dropbox has been breached at least twice, with 68 million user account details leaked.
No remote 'cloud' system is bulletproof. At least with 1AVShare, the system is only up if your PC is on (or router is on) and you have much more granular control over it.

Reply   |   Comment by Chris  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Chris, your are right which is why I remove the files from DB as soon as I hear that they have been successfully downloaded. Two concerns I have with 1AVShare that being it's similar to a backdoor, and 2nd, if your system experiences a crash down the road, the freebee is lost unless having done a backup where as DB is there all the time. There is also the option to buy the program. There is no right answer it's just a personal preference.

I have used used PCWinsofts 1AVCenter which includes this. It is fairly difficult to setup as mentioned. However, once setup, it works wonderfully. I have used this module before when traveling and I have used the part of !AVCenter that allows you to view a webcam remotely. I tried many others and they just did not do the job. You might want to take the time to work through the difficult setup. It is worth it.

This is probably a good program, but may be overkill for the average home user.

If you just want to transfer the occasional file(s), wetransfer.com is an excellent (and very easy) online service that I've been using for years to send large files and batches of photos. The maximum file size for free accounts is 2gb.

Reply   |   Comment by Ros  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+25)

Ros, Indeed, and I love weTransfer. Guess this is more useful if you're away on holiday/travels and need access to a file you didn't upload.

Reply   |   Comment by Chris  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Ros,

Firefox also has a free file sharing service called Firefox Send. You can send up to 1GB files without an account, and up to 2.5GB files by logging into your free Firefox account. It features end-to-end encryption, can be password protected, and a link that automatically expires after an amount of time (5 minutes to 7 days) or number of downloads (1 to 100) that you select. It doesn't appear to be limited to certain file types from what I can tell.

Era, I was just to install the software but read your comment. Please, can you tell me in few words that does it mean for a Windows 10 home user? Many thanks.

Reply   |   Comment by Jorge  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

Jorge, I tried to import a file with .FBK extension and it gave me this error. After that it gave me this same error every time I tried to start the program.
So it does not like any other file extensions than the ones they allow.
I'll just carry on using Dropbox as in the past. Works like a dream as Tester #5 said.
