    I myself have always used giFTcurs, it's a nice lightweight app used for internet file transfers. But! it's just a front end to giftd (gift server).

    Here's the website for details:

    http://gift.sourceforge.net/

    There's links to other front ends if you don't like the giFTcurs one..

    Also.. what you should also know is that even though you have downloaded the server (gift) and a frontend like apollo, giFTcurs, etc.. you still need to connect to a client... such as openft, gnutella, p2p, etc...

    Some usefull links:

    OpenFT and Gnutella:
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...group_id=34618

    P2P (Fast track):

    https://developer.berlios.de/projects/gift-fasttrack/

    Oh... and some more useful information... if your ever looking for a package and you can't find it anywhere check out gentoo.org's online package database... you just type in what you are looking for and most of the time your search will show up and it will tell you right there what the home website for that package is... it's what I do when all else (google) fails.

    if your just transfering a file, i have found oldschool unix is the answer kermit will not only transfer secure, but checks each line for errors and is great for one to one. If you need to send to 40 people, your best off just running an FTP like vsftp and giving only them access. contrary to popular belief that you have to buy a domain name, just give your friends your ip and then make the file read only, leave the service running for a week or so, and your done.

    the torrent is a great way to get files and programs as the datarates that you achieve are generaly much faster (i was dling at about 1.5mbps with most servers i manage 500k to 700k tops)
