I have what i believe to be a great idea. It's not an original one and it's basically a free and upgraded version of a program i use. There is a program called "wormhole" ...can be found at www.crystalfiresw.com...for you to get an idea of what i'm talking about. It's basically an ftp type app. Here's the jist of it:
Person A installs the Super Wormhole and leaves it running in the background.
Person B does the same thing.....you can have as many persons as you want.
Person A decides hey, i need that file that Person B wants me to see.
Person A scrolls their list of peers that they are setup to connect to and finds Person B. Perosn A then clicks connect. If person B requires it, then Person A will have to put in a username and password.
Once Person A is connected to the wormhole they can see a list of files and folders that Person B is sharing with them.
Person A then drags the file, files or even entire folder into their wormhole and the download begins.
Now i know this sounds just like and FTP app. But the speeds that i transfer through the wormhole is lightning fast compared to using an ftp. Plus i'd like it to be more secure and user friendly for the non-techy family members that i have and would like to share family photos and so forth with. The wormhole transfer speed is faster than my LAN transfer speed on my home network. If this has already been done and someone knows of an app that does this then i do apologize....and please enlighten me. Thanks for reading this. Please let me know what you think.
