Hi there,

for work I need to share files (config dumps and the like) that are quite large, e-mail nearly always strips Zips out these days, then people have limits on how large a file can be sent/recieved.  And then where I work blocks FTP and anything else removetly useful.

So does anyone know of a file shareing service that is "work friendly" .. as in won;t get blocked by the various webmarshall programs or upset system admins ?

Thanks!

Mark

Put in a request that your sysadmins allow secure ftp?

Perhaps you could talk to your admins and look at Blade TS?

Read about it in my blog and discuss it in this topic.

Have you tried FolderShare? It should work through a proxy and allows you to access files on your work computer remotely. It's a Microsoft Live product so that will either fill you with confidence or fear depending on your opinion of MS Live. www.foldershare.com

personally I dont like the idea of hosting business related files on the web. Your boss might feel the same way.

secure FTP for the win.

Well none of the solutions suggested above mentioned hosting them on the web, but all solutions require a username and password so it doesn't matter whether it's SFTP or another protocol, your security is as strong as your password.

Another option is Microsoft's Mesh, which is currently in beta version.  See www.mesh.com.

Mesh does mean hosting the files online, which some people might see as a security issue.  But the service is designed for sharing files in a common working environment, which sounds like what you want.  You get 5 GB of online storage (for free), with the files replicated and syncronised on local computers if you want.  There is also a logging facility for noting who accessed what files and when, along with a chat/notes tool for online collaboration.

Edit:  You need to sign up and then be invited to join the beta.  I received an invite within a day or so of signing up.  Other people have reported differing delays in receiving an invite.  YMMV.

I still think Foldershare is probably the best option so far - the files aren't hosted on the internet, they stay on your computer. It should also work through most proxies.
