How could is this for peer to peer and how does it compare?

I don't get it. Is this something like a local FTP-server with web interface?
Does the software provide a service to have a not changing web address for the server?

Cereus, It is a web server and you need a static IP within your LAN, and a port forward on your router to set it up.

Alessandro Ferri, A static IP within your LAN is half of it ... you also need to know your public IP to give to someone else so they can connect to your router.

Chris, A static IP is not a necesity... but I won't be helping anyone put this program live on the internet it is begging data loss and system intrusion or at best denial of service crashes. It is buggy and unstable as well as using insecure unencrypted basic authenication and plain text unenecrypted traffic.

TK, Actually, as far as needing a Static 'Internet' IP Address, unless you don't mind constantly giving everyone your latest dynamic IP address over & over & over so that they can continue to successfully connect to your web / file server page/s... otherwise you DO require a Static 'Internet' IP Address!

However, even if your particular Internet Service Provider (ISP) DOES keep dynamically changing your IP address periodically, there a quite a few quite cheap VPN Services (Fastest VPN for example) that always provide you with the same static IP address for each particular location.

So you could always run the program/file server through a VPN Service such as the one mentioned above (or any of a number of other VPN services that always provide the same static IP address for each selected location) in order to have a Static 'Internet' IP address to be able to give out to everyone who needs to have long term ongoing access.

A further benefit of this would also be that all data would be encrypted during its transfer from Point A through to its destination at Point B.

A downside obviously to this way of getting a Static 'Internet' IP Addesss however would of course be the somewhat slower data transfer speeds of going through a VPN Service, due to having the data encrypted.

If you could live with the slightly slower transfer speeds though, this would be one way of addressing and resolving the vast majority of the issues.

Drew.

A VPN connects your PC to a secure network. So if you were at home, your work might have a VPN you 'log into' to join that network. In your example, you connect to another network which reroutes your web-requests to another country. This doesn't affect how others connect to you. You don't get your own IP.

Also, there is a slight confusion with regard to static IPs. Most PCs (going back to a home environment) would have a dynamic IP. They get given an IP by their router. Additionally, that router has a dynamic public IP given to it by your ISP. Ideally, your PC needs to be given a static IP (as your router needs to transfer traffic from port X to your PC). Your router doesn't need a static IP, as there are dynamic DNS companies. I sort of mentioned it, but didn't go into much detail. So your comment of 'unless you don't mind constantly giving everyone your latest dynamic IP address' isn't true - you can just use a dymanic URL such as chrisjlocke.conntecttome.net - this gets updated regularly to your dynamic IP.

Drew, well with or without a static IP address I would never be so pre-historic as to give out my current IP number times have changed since the 1960's.

A VPN would only potentially encrypt between the VPN user and the VPN end point, but with this server between the visitor and the VPN endpoint which is where the unencrypted basic authentication and ALL the plain text unencrypted content would travel. VPN's DO NOT encrypt 100% of the connection just the part that lies within the VPN network assuming they are not operated by criminals that are acting as man in the middle data thieves.

If you want to share large files with someone else, they would need this program to download it....true ?

Reply   |   Comment by Scott  –  22 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Scott, no, they would download the files through their browser. This program acts as a web server that allows their browser to connect directly to your computer and access the files that you have chosen to share.

Scott, No. You need it. Visitors need only a regular browser, and visitors can upload large files as well.

Setting your machine up as a web-server has serious security implications. You're connecting your machine 'directly' to the Internet. At the moment, it's hidden behind the router. Although your PC might have an IP of x.x.x.x, this is actually the router, so it's hard for hackers to get onto your actual PC. Once you connect your PC to the Internet though, hackers have a 'pipe' into it. If they can break into banks, companies like LinkedIn (just look at all the data breaches on haveibeenpwned.com) then your PC is a honeypot just waiting to be cracked open.
Secondly, most people have a dynamic IP address. This means, if you reboot your router, you're going to have a different IP address. If you give your mate Ted an IP of 81.45.69.20 to connect to you, he won't be able to anymore. You can connect these to a dynamic DNS server to use a temporary domain name (eg, chris.connecttome.com), but that's more software you have to run on your machine.
If you just want to share large files (rather than emailing them) you can use a transfer service like wetransfer.com for files up to 2 GB.
Unsure about other countries, but in the UK, normal Internet upload speeds can be a lot slower than download speeds. This means while you might have '50 MB broadband!!!111', it might only be 1 MB upload and 50 MB download, so transferring files could take longer than you thought. Additionally, if this upload bandwidth gets swamped (eg, four people try and download a large file at the same time) it will significantly impact your download speeds and normal browsing, as you will be restricted sending webpage requests, etc - these all use the same upload bandwidth.

All in all, think carefully before installing this software. If you install it and don't use it, your PC is still connected directly to the Internet.

Chris, Thanks for that info.

I am happy to admit that my knowledge of such issues is not that great so I shall not, as a consequence, be using this service.

Reply   |   Comment by Terry I  –  22 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+39)

Chris, I do believe you can set the connection to a port, say 3287, so only traffic to that port is sent to your IP/port can reach your PC. secondly it makes sense to assign access to that section a user name and password, like "The_Magnificent_Mr_Rapinski" and the password to "3qually_as_c0mplex_as_w@x-0n_w@x0ff383940"

In addition routers block port scans by default so it would be more secure as you are not a public server with a published IP.

In appreciation of your comments, yes, this is not something you can click and play.

That being stipulated, If you can't manage router ports this is not for you. You need to know something of networking, routers, IP and ports. It is best to give your device a static Lan IP, and set your configuration properly.

If you are unfamiliar with these things, you are correct, a great deal of caution is needed, if you do this can likely be used as a private 'dropbox'.

I intend to download it and test. Thanks for your comment Chris.

Terry I, If you don't need to share files (large files) frequently with others, then no, this software is of no use. Unfortunately, due to its nature, its not software that you can install 'just in case' as it (potentially) opens your machine up to be a webserver.
Normal webserver software (apache, as a big named brand) is updated frequently to account for security issues found. Their website doesn't show an update history, so its not clear how frequently this is updated.

Reply   |   Comment by Chris  –  22 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

Chris, thanks for all the heads up but according to manufacturer this software uses native Windows security to allow users in. If you trust Windows security then you can trust this program.

Reply   |   Comment by Alessandro Ferri  –  22 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Spam Sorenson,
> "In addition routers block port scans by default"

Possibly port scans, but most are noddy enough to allow repeated attempts at numerous ports. So I couldn't say to the router, "hey, what have you got running on port 3020?" but it wouldn't stop me trying to connect to port 3010, then 3011, 3012, etc, to find something listening.

> secondly it makes sense to assign access to that section a user name and password

My main concern is that this software uses weak security which could easily be bypassed.
Wordpress has been around years, and that's easily broken into, so I'd have little confidence in this program.

Alessandro Ferri,

Do you remember in Windows 95 where you could just press [Esc] on the sign-in page to bypass login? I don't think Windows 'security' is adequate in this instance.

All this means is that generic API is used to encrypt the users/passwords in the system (hopefully!!)

Reply   |   Comment by Chris  –  22 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Chris, all your concerns are valid for novice users that don't have experience with basic networking, router configurations, etc. I frequently exchange large amounts of pics and videos (often 20 - 50 gig packages) that are to big for drop boxes. These family members live far away and are not very computer savy. This is perfect for me to turn it on, give them a simple link, let and they can let their computer run (overnight or what ever) and then I shut it off when they are done.

Reply   |   Comment by J  –  22 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

J, To share 50Gbyte files the best way to share them if you really must share files that big is using a bittorent client and running a private tracker on your own machine using a dynamic DNS service if you do not have a static IP. disable peer exchange and DHT to avoid unouthorised sharing once you remove the torrent from the tracker. This server is not mature, it is not even a service, no SSL/TLS1.2 no secure authentication it uses basic base64 encoded authentication. This is not perfect for you, expect resource leaks... mime content mismatches... try entering the Spanner buttons config form and pressing Customise button... and spot the untrapped exception that takes out the entire program.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  22 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Chris, it claims to use 128bit Digest encryption BUT does not use that in reality it only uses Base64 encoded Basic authenication.

Authorization: Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=

https://www.base64decode.org/

As well as preloaded with stupid user names of guest and admin and has the audacity to claim it's a secure file sharing server yet any packet sniffing stream recorder can glean content and authentication... not even forgetting the potential programming error based vulnerabilities that probably abound as soon as an attacker starts fuzzing the server to see what happens.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  22 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Chris, Wouldn't using a VPN service that always provides the exact same 'Internet' IP Address for each selected location get around most of the security and dynamically changing IP address issues?

If you have the time, please read my response to TK (see above) as I'd be interested in knowing your thoughts and opinion regarding what I wrote.

Drew.
