Easy File Sharing Web Server is a tool for sharing files. Technically, it is an HTTP server that installs in your computer and allows other users to connect to it to download and upload files. This tool comes with a user interface built-in, so you don't have to worry about designing an HTML file for it. There is support for SSL for added security.
Easy File Sharing Web Server is incredibly easy to set up. After it installed, the web server was up and running, and I could access the website from within my home network with no problems. The application supports user accounts. There are some already configured, but you can delete them and create your own. You are encouraged to do so. Guests can also log-in to the server and they will have access to your system files by default, so it is also a good idea to disable guest logins until you configure the system properly. With some port-forwarding, users outside your home network can also connect to your server.
All in all, this server has quite a lot of features and several options, but it is still easy to use and set up.
- It is easy to setup
- Works well out-of-the-box
