I am considering setting up a private file sharing server for some friends and myself. I have quite a few requirements, and from my research it looks like they may not all be able to be met, but I want to make sure I am not overlooking anything.
-Server runs on Linux
-Clients available for Windows, Linux and Mac
-Browseable user share lists
-Scalable for large indexes of files
I think those are all of my desired qualities, though replies on this thread will likely remind me of more.
I have some experience with running a LAN based OpenNap server and a DC hub. OpenNap seems like the best bet so far, though it doesn't appear to have encryption possibilities and IIRC it requires a lot of RAM when users with lots of files connect.
WASTE seems like it might be along the lines of what we are looking for, but it lacks a Linux client, which is a deal breaker for us.
Any guidance on this project would be much appreciated.
