HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Re: HFS doesn't work
« on: March 31, 2022, 05:32:16 PM »
I see, so it's a certain kind of packets that need to be accepted at the start?

I do remember switching the firewall off briefly but this was before I made that port forward rule in my router so that could've been an obstacle. Also, the person who tried and failed to download my file was not a friend but a customer service rep so who knows what kind of strict security setup he had, not to mention the language barrier because I had to ask 3 times for him to confirm or deny that he tried to click the link.

Earlier, I had a friend test my link and he (along with HFS logs) confirmed that he got the download going when I disabled my FW but couldn't when it was on. I can also test my router port forward later to confirm if that too was obstructing anything.

I will make sure to grab your latest build, but when you say there's no upload feature, I hope that doesn't mean I can't share files, as that's the only reason I used HFS to date.

But yeah, I am glad someone is still actively developing his program after all these years, I rarely see that. There is so much abandonware out there, great programs that are not compatible with modern OS, closed source too so no way to maintain them, such tragedy. Can't understand people who have less respect for their own creations than I do.

But accessing sites requires both inbound and outbound, no? I would assume that if I'm not reachable, then I shouldn't be able to reach the site, or at least the site wouldn't be able to access stuff like my cookies so would be partially unusable?

I found the problem, it was my software firewall. Normally, it should ask me if I want to allow HFS inbound/outbound access but it didn't. Then again, there were some, not many, but some other applications that still failed despite me giving the firewall the go-ahead, so I don't know.

I also didn't realize until now that I was talking to the admin of the site, I'm honored, lol. I rarely have much use for your app now but 10 years ago when I was a kid it was a godsend and worked flawlessly. To be able to share stuff without relying on some third party hoster was great. I don't know if it would've meant more to hear it then but at least you got my feedback now. :p

Take care.

Ok... now it suddenly works. Weird.

Thanks for all the input.

Error: I could not see your service on (my IP) on port (80)
Reason: Connection timed out

I'm confused, if port 80 is blocked then how can I use my browser right now to post on this site?

I did set accept connections to "any address", you say its not a problem with HFS but where else would the problem be? How do we troubleshoot this? I can upload files just fine on any other app, such as torrents, so why would HFS allow a variable in my environment to render it unusable? Is there an app similar to HFS I can try?

I used HFS like 10 years ago and don't remember any problems, but I'm trying the latest version now and it simply isn't working. It only works when I use my internal IP but that's obviously useless if anyone else is trying to download my file. The old version doesn't work either.

I tried the self-help thing but it just said it isn't available at this time. I don't know if that means it failed or that the feature doesn't work.

I did add a port forward for HFS in my router settings, not sure if I did it right but I haven't had to do this for any other filesharing app. Tried turning my software firewall off too.

Any help would be appreciated.
