Swift Share

Easily create file share points across your local network.

Swift Share overview

Swift Share allows users to easily create file share points across your local network.

Sharing files across your local network just got easier! Swift Share allows the easy creation of both Windows and Mac share points. Take control of Mac OS X's built-in file servers and tweak them to perfection.

Share points are points across the network at which remote users can access your files. Mac OS X gives you one default share point: your home directory. However, if you're anywhere but home, you won't want to be giving everyone access to your entire home directory! Using Swift Share, choose only which folders you share and which users have access.

The power of Swift Share doesn't end at its ability to manage your share points. It also offers unique flexibility to manage users and groups on your system. For instance, create a new group of sharing-only users to access a "Games" folder on your computer.

Swift Share also gives you more than just start and stop controls for the powerful file servers built-in to Mac OS X. Customize nearly one hundred aspects of the Apple and Windows file servers. From user limits, guest permissions, and logging to workgroups, authorization modes, and greetings!

I don't see the point of this product being $49.95 when I can get Lion Server or Mountain Lion Server add-ons for far less money (19.99 for Mountain Lion). $10 is about right for the price of the product; at least that's what I'd pay for it.

I bought this a while back and was very please with the purchase. Today I needed to modify some settings that I made who-knows-how-long-ago and found that Swift Share wouldn't work on 10.5, and the developer refuses to maintain it. I guess there goes $20 in the trash.

Keep in mind that this only works with Mac OS X Tiger, aka System 10.4.x.

This appears to be just what I am looking for to use on my mixed network. I have kids and my wife that use the network all day long. I need a place to keep my work files and my private files without giving access to everyone but limit access to just my wife and I.

This is extremely handy. Wish I could use it to access the Active Directory stuff on the network at work.

With the release of Windows Vista, it is harder to share files from Mac to PC. This tool should help make that process a little less stressful.

To those who ask about the comparison to the free SharePoints - I've used it for years, but after a trial of Swift Share, it looks to be just as powerful, but with a better user interface. It looks like it will be considerably easier to use.

I just found out about this app and EUREKA - there's a deal on it! What luck! I've needed something like this at home for my wife - who has a PC laptop from work and needs to share with my all Mac home network easily (and affordably.)And now it looks like this will be a great way to share files with a group of admins from my local collectors club. Looks like a great app - and I can't wait to get into it more!

I've used the beta and found the app to be helpful. Not much in Help department or any kind of manual, but good none-the-less.

Will be buying an ultra-portable notebook, however as I got tired of waiting for Apple to release theirs, it will be a Windows PC. This should make it easier to share files with iMac at home.
