An encrypted file-sharing program for computer-to-computer, either over the Internet or inside the LAN. The client program sends the files and the server program receives them. A password is required to send files to the server. Can resume interrupted transfers. Communicates with TCP through port 4520. (Note: The recipient of files has to make sure that the port that the server listens on is open all the way.)

Benefits

  • The transfers are protected with 448-bit Blowfish encryption.
  • Displays information such as current progress, speed and remaining time.
  • The server can receive files from multiple clients simultaneously.
  • The port that the server listens on can be changed, then add the port number as a parameter to AS-FILE-TRANSFER-SERVER.EXE. E.g. Run => "C:\Andreas Software\AS-FILE-TRANSFER-SERVER.EXE" "4521" => OK.

Tip

Keep in mind that all participants must use the same version.


Is the encryption a bottleneck?

On my computer, with the processor Intel Core i3-2120, the program is able to encrypt approximately 32 MB/sec. which is the same as 256 Mb/sec. Therefore, I need to have more bandwidth than 256 Mb/sec. in order for the encryption to be a bottleneck. You can check your own performance by sending a file to yourself at the loopback address (127.0.0.1).


Additional parameters

Use the parameter "/AllowSleep" to allow your computer to sleep, the default behaviour is that the programs prevents your computer to sleep while the programs are running.
