For a long time me and my girlfriend have suffered from the problem of long distance file transfers. We were able to do many via certain websites such as www.filebeam.com. As time went, we were forced to find sites capable of sending larger files, and now we're unable to find a working alternative.

That all being said, we'd like to set up a more "permanent" solution such as a VPN, or anything else you suggest. We'd like to be able to send/receive at least 5GB files at any given moment. I've tried gBridge (I believe that's what it was called) but ran into some problems, most likely user error.

Any suggestions (And possibly a walk through for them) would be greatly appreciated :D

Thanks for the help, but the majority of those suggestions are actually things I've already tried.

There was one thing that caught my eye, the FTP idea. But it stated that I needed to upload the file to a server computer. I could use this computer as a server, but I have no idea how to do that or where to even begin when it comes to possible FTP applications and such. I am willing to give it a try if anyone can walk me through some of it. I consider myself fairly computer literate, but not a Computer Science major by far (about 3 years off actually :D)

Sorry, more of a hardware freak.

Possible information might be Microsoft knowledge base.

If no one has picked this up in the next three days I suggest you start a new topic asking about FTP.

Good luck.

Hi.

How are yo going with setting up FTP server?
Came across a very interesting site. Files of any size remotely accessed, directly from your computer, Information is not stored on a server, No need to set up an FTP server on your system.

It appears to be free, donations through PayPal.

May be what you need? > http://www.weezo.net/
