I've been a Wired Server 1.3.4 user for years, but the new 2.0.1 version has some problems. It just randomly starts using 40-50% of the CPU constantly. I have to stop and restart the server in order for it to stop. Anyone else having this problem?

Zankas website is already off. His tracker is running again. But we don´t know how long and if zanka decides to bring his website online again. But where to Download the Client and Server now?

I wrote a Mail to zanka and ask him if I can host his Wired-Wiles on my Wired-Project-Page. If he send me an OK the Files will be shortly available here:

http://wired.zapto.org

I backuped all files he had on his page (for example the tracker-sources). Lets hope he says: Yes.

Wired Server is a great client/server tool. I use it to access my files on my home Mac remotely, and let others I trust do the same. It has some great features like encryption and automatic updates of the search index.

It's also missing a lot of features, like threaded news, a connection monitor, and activity logging (so you can see a history of activity, etc.)

Then there are the bugs: first, for no reason, it seems to crash a lot and while you can set Wired Server to auto-launch at login, you can't set it to auto-restart if it crashes. I also have an issue with Drop Boxes—creating them doesn't always work. Also, uploading to them (and sometimes other directories) sometimes doesn't work, either. It will look like the upload completed successfully according to the transfers window, but the files will not have actually been transferred. I thought this was a permissions, but not only does it occur in folders that have the exact same privs as others that do work, it happens even on folders that you create using Wired Client.

All in all, it's great that Wired exists and is free, I just wish development was a bit more active and the application a bit deeper.

Up and running in no time, secure thanks to strong encryption and free. And well, it has been localised too (English, French, German and Japanese), and provides a fairly nice user management! Simply awesome.
Of course, this is no VPN but as a Mac only software (for the client side at least) this is perfect for my purpose: exchange project-related files & messages with colleagues/ other freelancers overseas and while I am on the road (For example, you can hardly send a 150MB file per eMail that easily, and you do save time not having to explain anyone how too...).
Running beautifully on a 350Mhz G3 with 256MB RAM (Headless "Blue & White"; Mac OS 10.4.7)
Many thanks Zanka Software :-)

This software runs an installer and places all kinds of files in invisible folders and in your startup items, etc. it may all be fine, but don't download unless you are willing to do this.

In other words, it isn't just an application that sits in your apps folder - but modifies your system behavior. I think apps should make this clear - even if they are free.

Jeez. People really need to tone down their computing paranoia. If you really knew what you were talking about, you would know that all this is installing is a startup item to launch the Wired server. It runs in the background as a daemon so as not to clutter up your Dock and other apps.

Seriously. If you want to be paranoid, figure out exactly what's going on and then report it. Don't just speculate on potentially malicious software.

Seems to install and work without issue. Easy, clean interface. VERY good that it's free.

It really needs isolated/discreet user folders though, in addition to the pooled file area.
