The first public beta of WebiToome has been relased by Black Diamond Products. WebiToome allows a user to receive files directly to your computer from your existing web page. According to the company:
- allows anyone who knows the URL of your specified web page to send you files
- requires the sender to have no special software other than a modern browser
- is available for both Macs and PCs
- can handle up to ten incoming transmissions simultaneously
- is very simple to set up and run
- receives directly from the senderis computer - no intermediate storage on a central server is required
- works with both permanent and dial-up connections
- features comprehensive logging
- automatically maintains the file submission part of your web page
- can be run unattended
- can be used to back up critical files for other people
No longer is it necessary to upload to a server for subsequent download, or to entrust your files to email. WebiToome does not replace your web host - it is not a web server but a file receiver that works in conjunction with your normal web host.
WebiToome is available as shareware for US$20. You can find more information at Black Diamond Productsi web site.
