ShowMyPC to share with others

Posted on January 15, 2008. Filed under: Microsoft Windows, sharing | Tags: , |

For the technically advanced (and those who just can’t leave the office behind), ShowMyPC combines VNC remote access technology with an open-source SSH forwarding client to provide you with the option to allow other users to view and control your desktop. The remote user needs to have the same ShowMyPC software and can access your computer with just a password (no IP address needed). The temporary session password is automatically generated when you start the viewing session and must be provided to the remote user by email, phone or other means. If you have access to your own SSH server, you can use it instead of the one provided. This is an open source Remote PC access project, an alternative to subscription based sites like WebEx or Gotomypc. You will also need OpenSSH or WinSSHD or a comparable program to do this without an SSH server elsewhere hosting the service.

Use at your own risk.

File-sharing up to 100MB

Posted on November 6, 2007. Filed under: Everything, Files, Utilities | Tags: , , |

Senduit is a one-time file-sharing service, handling up to 100MB.  If you need to be careful about keeping it secure, encrypt it first.  Set the time limit: 30 minutes, an hour, a day, up to a week.  You get back an URL to send to yourself or whomever.  When the time is up, the file is erased.  Simple but handy, if you mislaid your USB flash drive and need to save your project where you can reach it from home.  Recommended by Lockergnome.
