The Web-File-Manager is one of five plugins delivered with the BarracudaDrive Web Server.
- Easy upload and download
With the Web-File-Manager you can securely upload, download, and manage your files on your home or office PC from anywhere in the world. The Web-File-Manager can bypass firewalls and proxies with the communication protocol HTTPS. The communication is protected by using SSL, allowing no one to eavesdrop on your file transfer.
- No need for additional software
The Web-File-Manager is similar to file sharing software -- it allows users to securely upload and download files easily through a web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc.). The Web-File-Manager lets you share files with your friends, customers, or colleagues -- they can download files from your PC and upload files from their PC. The files can be accessible from any remote computer with internet access with no need for additional software. As an option, the Web-File-Manager can be used in secure mode by using SSL encryption. The secure mode protects and prevents eavesdropping on your file transfer. The Web-File-Manager is very useful for anyone who wants to organize and manage files remotely.
- Run a web server on your PC
With a Web-File-Manager run on your own computer, you can host a secure peer-to-peer and web based file sharing system without any additional software. You can run a web site on your own PC, share photos, movies, videos, music and MP3 files securely. Visitors can upload and download files easily through web-based interfaces.
- Hacker safe
The Web-File-Manager has built in hacker prevention tools and prevents attackers from gaining access to your PC. The Web-File-Manager comes with a user manager that lets you give other users limited access to your PC. You are in full control by specifically setting permissions for what the various users can access.
- Secure easy file sharing
The Web-File-Manager is a file sharing system that is more secure, simpler and faster than other sharing methods. There is no need to install additional software or configure and build your system. All you need is a browser.
- Easier than ftp
The Web-File-Manager is much easier to use than a typical FTP server. You simply use a web browser to manage files on your web server instead of a FTP client.
- Extra features
The server can also be used as a standard File Server. The File Server is similar to the Web-File-Manager, but it allows you to view your home computer as a local drive, for example, on your work computer.
