    I was wanting to know is anybody knew a application/program that allows me to send files through the net to a friend on his computer.

    I tried MSN, but I do not wish to use this program.

    Is there a program out there?

    Thanks

    Yes, it's called WASTE, and it's a very handy little p2p program where only you and your friends can create a network between each other. It can be very complicated to set up, but it's still cool none the less. Go here for setup instructions, be sure to read it all.


    Mods: Hope I'm not overstepping my bounds by posting this. Me and my friend use it to share old episodes of Ducktales and animes that haven't seen stateside release. hehe. But if you must remove this, so be it.

    Ducktales, one of my favorite shows when I was a kid. You could use mIRC and setup a "Server" and allow your friends to go in and share things.

    mIRC? Umm anything else? I am not too much of fan of mIRC.

    Is it hard to do through mIRD though? Becuase I know nothing about the application.

    Or you can download DirectConnect, and setup a hub, and password protect it. Then only give him the password, and your IP address.

    Irc. Aim. Ftp.

    [edit]
    Why does it lowercase the everything after the first letter? I typed I-R-C, A-I-M, and F-T-P.
