hello, one question is the software a service based, will it run all the time, starting with windows, or only when user starts the software and fully exits once user closes the program?

in other words does it run any background processes that user especially those that user is not aware of it?

infi, If you can not find such info in the set ups, it probably runs all the time in the background.

Does this program give feedback, or reports on which shared files were actually accessed or downloaded by an authorized user?

I stay away from software that needs administrative rights to install, furthermore, installing in safe mode bypasses all of your anti virus and securities settings and third you have no idea where and under what keys and name(s) and access ownership this software installed in the windows registry.
The installation is permanent and your computer can be made a part of a hidden network in the background.

If you feel adventurous, please install it.

1) My home computer is on Verizon DSL, and my IP comes from DHCP on Verizon and changes from time to time. (I assume the same will happen if I ever move to FIOS - correct?) Then, at home, I have a modem-router, and the devices on my LAN get internal IPs via DHCP (192.168.0.xx), so the internal IPs change also.
If I am "host", how does the "client" find me?
2) The sound kept cutting out on the first youtube video on 1AV's web site.
3) Does 1AV have a pdf manual?
4) Sorry, but a good program should not require Safe Mode to install.

Wanna be more secure? Don't make a file sharing server out of your host system, unliess it's for local network only.

With all the (always) free ways to share my files safe and secure I see no reason to give anyone access to my system even not with 128bit encryption. As I see also mentioned that there might be a need to use safe mode before people can install let me put down once again this warning;
Security and security software are there for a reason.If you need to disable (part of) this security in order to install a software you put yourself at risk. No software is worth putting yourself at risk.

There are many free services where you upload a file and then send an email to notify someone that the file is available for download. This is perfectly safe especially if you encrypt the file you are sending.

Setting up an app to share files on your PC seems risky to me. Particularly on a Windows PC. Personally, I have a Raspberry Pi, with a single drive, setup with the sole purpose of being a dedicated FTP server. Nothing on it but stuff I'm willing to share with everyone.

Lew,

"Setting up an app to share files on your PC seems risky to me. Particularly on a Windows PC. Personally, I have a Raspberry Pi, with a single drive, setup with the sole purpose of being a dedicated FTP server. Nothing on it but stuff I'm willing to share with everyone."

The gotcha is if the device has access to your network, then it potentially can be compromised, & a cybercriminal might be able to work their way laterally to access everything else connected to that network, including your PC/laptop etc. Or as with most IoT devices, it might be possible to recruit it into a bot net, or as a server maybe use re-direct exploits & so on. Generally if a device can process code, it can potentially be taken over to do bad things -- something that has actually reached epidemic proportions, with the feds looking at regulating/enforcing minimal security requirements.

Fair comment. I'd use this to share files occasionally between my own non-networked machines, or with a colleague at strictly pre-arranged times. I certainly wouldn't have it running continually on a Windows PC but that doesn't mean it can't be useful. As always security should be everyone's first consideration.

This is not a server software as stated, it is more like a remote access. I believe the developer has master password to any of his/her installed software to remotely access anyone.
I may be paranoid, but better safe than sorry is my motto. The red flag for me is to install software in safe mode and to bypass any or all securities, I will not even download such software.
Also, I believe this software is automatically connected to home base every time it is remotely accessed by the users.

Is not a VPN better? Cheaper? Pass on this one. I use a VPN. Encrypted everything works for me.

Reply   |   Comment by Daniel Platten  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

Daniel Platten, A VPN is a different product to this... this should only be used over a LAN not over the internet as it does not have advanced security like protection against dictionary attacks or SSL. The simple way to share files over a LAN is microsoft windows networking and SMB/Samba on *nix/android devices. Over the internet use something like dropbox and encrypt the files before uploading and let them deal with the rest of the security and any malicious attacks.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Daniel Platten,

"Is not a VPN better?"

Different animal so-to-speak... When you visited the GOTD site earlier, it's possible that everything that passed between your Windows device & the GOTD site was intercepted by a third party. Where VPN comes in, is that that connection would have been between your device & a VPN server, everything passing between the two would have been encrypted, & the VPN server, acting as proxy, would have actually visited the GOTD site, relaying all the data to you.

1AVShare OTOH provides: "an embedded web server of your very own that resides entirely within the confines of your computer,". It's basically a minimal version of the same sort of web servers GOTD uses to store & present this site. You set up your own site on your Windows device, include access to whatever you want to share, and anyone with the site address & login info [i.e. name & password you already authorized] can access that site and whatever you wanted to share, using their web browser.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+18)

mike,
You are misleading, VPN is safer than this software. First, you missed few other Internet connections like:
I'm connecting to my Internet provider and then I'm connecting to my chosen and or different DNS server, who connects to the Internet provider for the individuals or the business's servers, who connects to the personal computer(s) or business computer(s) on the premises.

The user's name and passwords must go through all of the above to connect to your computer, do you think that any of the passwords cashed on any of the servers above can not be accessed by a hacker?

Another problem arises using third party intermediate software, they may be vulnerable to hacks or the software publisher may have a master key to access your computer in the background.

hi,
how would it compare to wamp or xampp. apart from the obvious that is a full package with Apache, PHP, MySQL, maybe the overhead, etc.

In an hypothetical situation that I need to grant access to my computer's content to someone I will use TeamViewer (free). Actually I have used that application to fix my daughters' computers while I was traveling. At work I use the company's server to share documents. Alternatively, If you trust Microsoft (I don't), use Remote Desktop, after all Microsoft already have access to your computer and all your Internet activities. But, do you really need to share your whole personal computer with anyone else? Better think twice before installing remote access programs if you are not computer savvy.

Luis,

We who didn't fall for the Win 10 trap and have turned off updates, are reasonably secure from MSFT spying. I remain surprised at how many fell for the 'free' upgrade like MSFT was going to do them any favors.

Next they'll be thrilled when some guy in uniform shows up at their door to announce, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help you."

Luis,
" I will use TeamViewer"

Please do bear in mind Luis that there have been many exploits & incidents where TeamViewer was used to compromise systems &/or networks. I'm NOT saying that it's necessarily unsafe --- just that cybercriminals have exploited TeamViewer installs to gain access, which is something IMHO anyone wanting to use it should research to help them stay safe.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)

mike, Again, you are misleading, can you certify that today's software is not vulnerable to hacks, does not have back door access to our computers and can never ever be hacked?

Why this software must be mounted in safe mode, another giveaway of something is not right using this software. Why all of my virus software must be disabled in order to install it?

I'm not going to install this although it is tempting. I want to keep my system safe, therefore I never install anything in safe mode. I reserve safe mode for fixing my system only. - Be clever and do the same.

Reply   |   Comment by Arrow  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

Arrow, I agree; I have never installed a software in Safe Mode, I only ran an anti-malware in safe mode as it was disabled by a malware in the Normal Mode. Moreover, as TK mentioned, "No SSL secure connections with this product"; so...

Reply   |   Comment by mukhi  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Arrow, OMG ... I would be very very cautious installing any software in safe mode. I'm not claiming to be any form of expert or such. I have been using computers since the DOS days and I've always believed that "safe mode" bypasses countless processes and files that load in the normal Windows environment and should be reserved for rectifying problems with the operating system only. Maybe I've misunderstood the use of "safe mode" but I will not install any product that requires you to go into safe mode to install as I sense it may be very dangerous.

Thank you just the same GOTD and I will continue to monitor the giveaways daily for solutions that I find worthwhile.

Reply   |   Comment by Contevou  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Arrow,

FWIW Safe Mode, with different options available depending on the Windows version, loads or starts the same Windows you have normally, but doesn't start all of the services &/or driver software that are normally run. That way if one of those services &/or drivers conflicts either with Windows or other installed software you might get rid of the offender.

Many security apps or suites nowadays also run services that start with Windows, and can't otherwise be turned off unless you boot to Safe Mode [& possibly not even then, e.g. with 10's Defender]. Briefly, security software can be wrong, & if you believe that that's the case, & security software is wrong to prevent running something like a GOTD setup file, Safe Mode may provide a solution. There has never been an infected GOTD setup file, so many feel it's a Very safe bet to say the security software's wrong, but it's your stuff, so it's your responsibility to protect it, & so your decision.

Installs and plays OK on Win 10 pro x64. I still have the download from 5 years ago, so I installed both to see if they were any differences. Looking in the levels folders, today's seems to have many more levels.
