HFS (HTTP File Server) is a web server tool for sharing files. You can limit this sharing to just a few friends, or be open to the whole world. Once the server is up and running, the administrator simply adds files to be shared via drag and drop.
Users wishing to download the shared files go to the specified IP address/domain where HFS is hosted via their favorite web browser. You will then be presented with an easy to navigate web page that lists all the available files that can be downloaded. You don’t have to install any new software for using this server. It is guaranteed to contain no malware.
HFS is different from classic file sharing because there is no network. HFS is a web server which uses web technology which is more compatible with today’s Internet.
