let you connect to your friends' computer, and transfer fast and secure any file or folder.
It uses direct P2P connection, that ensure the fastest possible transfer speed between the two computers.
Extended with a NAT traversal protocol (IPv6 Teredo), it is able to directly connect even behind NATs and firewalls.
Try it, you'll never want to use something else for transferring files!
How to use it: In order to connect two computers using this program, you need to run "File Transfer" on each computer. Here are the steps to make the transfer work:
Step 1: Determine which of the two computers will be the server and which the client. You choose which one is which, according to which computer has a public IP (an IP that can be directly accessed by the other computer). Note: If you don't know what public IP means, just try both possibilities: at first one computer is the server and the other one the client, and, if that doesn't work, try the opposite. If any of the setups doesn't work, that means either any computer doesn't have a public IP, or the firewall blocks the port (by default the port is 14567).
Step 2: Setup the client. The only thing that you need to setup is the client. Open the Settings window on the client, and type the IP address of the server in the "Direct connection IP" edit box. The IP you have to insert on the client is displayed on the server in the status window.
For example, if on the server is displayed the following line in the status window: "Server started. Listening on 126.96.36.199:14567 (TCP)..." the IP you have to type in the client settings is the numbers before the colon, in this example 188.8.131.52.
