at work, I'm behind a firewall that stupidly blocks (among other things) ZIP files and FTP. While I have a solution for FTP (http://web2ftp.com
), that can pull ZIP files from an FTP server and repack it as .tgz (which I can
download), my only solution for HTTP downloads of ZIP files was the service of Streamload (http://www.streamload.com
, but don't bother to go there), which sucked mightily, but gave you the ability to directly
upload files (of any kind) from HTTP servers to your account and enable you to rename the extension
, and I was ready to download it to my machine.
Unfortunately, they "upgraded" their service to something called "MediaMax" (and lost 90% of my files in the transition, BTW), which dropped that feature completely.
Now I'm asking you: Does anyone know of a comparable solution (preferrably also free) anywhere? Please note that not only the uploading, but also the renaming part is essential.
Any ideas are highly appreciated, as this is kinda essential for me. TIA.
BTW: I remember seeing the term "sideload" for feature of idisk or xdisk back in the heydays of the .com boom; no idea if anyone could figure out from the subject what I mean...
