FilePhile

1.4
07 October 2008

Free, direct, unlimited, and secure person-to-person file transfer.

Overview

FilePhile is like an IM client, except it's for files. It uses an advanced and cryptographically secure protocol that can transfer unlimited files of unlimited size directly between computers, even if one or both users is behind a firewall!

It can also recover from pauses, restarts, crashes, or even changes in external network address. This means that you can start a transfer at home, close your laptop, go to a coffee shop, and when you open your laptop and go online the transfer will simply continue.

The basic FilePhile client is free, and a Pro version is on the way. Runs natively on Mac, Windows, and Linux/Unix, meaning that you can use it to transfer files with anyone regardless of what operating system or computer type they are using.

What's new in FilePhile

Version 1.4 features a free automatic relay service that permits the approx. 5% of users whose routers/firewalls will not allow a direct connection to transfer files by bouncing off a FilePhile server. This doesn't impact security or privacy at all, since data is still encrypted by the sender and can be decrypted only by the receiver.

This is certainly promising BUT I cannot get it to do anything. Even trying to add a friend's email address simply does nothing.

This program is now dead -- the domain's gone and I'm realizing there's no apparent way to report the problem in MacUpdate. It was good while it lasted but given its death I'm going to have to lower its star rating!

The site linked from this listing for more information is not corresponding, so I don't want to be too harsh before that issue is resolved, but in order to initialize the program, it appears that certain information must be submitted to an online service even though the software is described as a free product. I'm making that assumption because upon launching and accepting the license agreement, the window presents both an email address field and a password address field with no explanation other than the text "... you registered with" next to each of those fields. That seem to imply that the credentials are not stored locally. This places the application in a category of applications that represent what I consider to be a disturbing trend in software development. They claim to be free but actually require a continued investment or dependency from the user (or subscriber).
