Acritum Femitter HTTP/FTP server - help index

Have you ever wanted to share your files with your friends easily, without having to buy expensive hosting and spending your time on uploading gigabytes of files to the remote server? If your answer is "YES", this software is likely to be the right thing for you. You don't have to install any additional software to run the server and you don't have to spend hours to configure your server: as soon as you run the Femitter Server, it becomes ready. There are 3 ways of using Femitter server:

  1. As an ordinary simple web server. Just create a few HTML pages and put them into a shared folder, and these pages will be shown to anyone who connects to your server. This feature may be used as your own web-based Bulletin Board System (BBS). Even if you have a dynamic IP address, Acritum Software is proud to offer you a static URL like http://fem.acritum.com which will always redirect your users to your computer, no matter what your current IP address is. Of course, the visitors of your website don't have to install any software at all, they will access your computer using any web browser that they like, for example Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, etc.
  2. As a huge public file storage of your photo, music, video and other files. The total size of the storage is only limited by the size of your hard drive and this is usually not less than 160 gigabytes! Your files may be accessible from Internet not only using HTTP protocol, but also using FTP protocol, which makes the downloads really fast and easy for your friends.
  3. As a password protected storage of corporate information for small businesses. The access to the server may be protected according to a highly customizable access rights. Create user groups and assign different rights to them. For example, your clients may have access to the info page with the possibility of uploading files to a certain folder, while your employees may access the whole system, browse all files, upload, rename or delete them.
