I have discovered JetBytes, Click2Copy and PipeBytes.
Those web services should make it simple to transfer a file of any kind and any size between two people that have only a web browser, without having the file stored on a third machine meanwhile.
However since the end users must connect to a third server, the data will flow through the machine
xyz.com, possibly slowing down the transfer.
So the question is:
Is there a simple tool that would behave as a server on my machine, as a client on another machine, for one single file transfer?
I want the transfer to be direct between the client and me. Encryption would be a nice additional feature.
I know that doing so I have to open one port on my computer, and configure a bit port redirection on my router. But I would like to avoid setting up a whole FTP server just for occasional file transfers.
