|Description:||GNU Internet File Transfer project (0.10.0-20020918-1)|
giFT is a `recursive' acronym for `giFT: Internet File Transfer'. The giFT project is actually a collection of several components together: the giFT daemon (which acts as bridge to the actual file sharing protocols), OpenFT (a p2p network designed to exploit all the functionality giFT supports), and a user interface front-end. Note that giFT is alpha software (but it works!), and is still very much under development! You should update *often*.
Make sure you run giFT-setup before using giFT. I usually open a termnial window and run giFT, and then in another window run giFT-shell or giFTcurs. man giFT, OpenFT.conf and gift.conf. They are your friends sample config files are in /sw/etc/giFT this entire dir can be copied to ~/.giFT please do not beg for help on #gift. They *will* flame you if the information you seek is in the docs. You have been warned. You can ask me for help in #fink, my nick is cirdan. Just private msg me. giFT -d detaches giFT from the term. Share! (there is no meta-info or resource forks. Files with resource forks must be encoded somehow: .bin .sit .dmg, etc.) :-)
