Dropbox alternative for those with FTP access
« on: June 27, 2012, 03:42:43 PM »
Of course, it doesn't have to be an alternative- I'm planning to try it side by side with my other syncing software (JungleDisk, Cubby, Dropbox, and SFFS).

FTPBox - File Syncing on your own Host

It's FOSS too!

It was discussed in this thread, but it appears more polished now, with a site and everything... and the source is available now on github and google code.

I haven't tried, but it looks worth an attempt as the site claims:

I use dropbox! Now you do not have to think how to move information from one computer to another. :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:
