A while back, we featured a portable HTTP file server called KouakOS
which arguably provides one of the most convenient way to share files with connected nodes in both heterogeneous and homogenous network, and with others over the internet, but one problem which may repel advanced users from using a HTTP server is that it doesn’t provide security of data being shared on the network. Since security can’t be compromised at any stage of data sharing, it’s recommended to use a more secured channel when it comes to exchanging classified information or files. 4Space
(name looks familiar to 4shared) is relatively more advance implementation of KouakOS. It’s an Adobe-Air based application that provides different sections according to both types of files and their security. The application lets you password protect files before sharing them over HTTP. Its web server, in contrast to KouakOS, offers a neat user interface, allowing users to switch between different file groups to download them on their systems.
