What's the easiest way for me to host files for friends to download directly off my computer? I'm running Ubuntu 7.10.
The goal: a friend can type in a URL (maybe I'll register with DynDNS since I'm using DSL, and my IP address changes periodically), see a list of folders/files, and download what they want.
Right now we're accomplishing this by me using Gmail to e-mail the file to them. What I'd rather do is have them be able to peruse the contents of a folder, as I'm constantly adding files to the folder(s). Rather than e-mail them all the time, they can log on, see what's there, and download it. They need to be able to do this through a browser, not an FTP client.
I'm not sure what I should even be looking for here. Searches like "file sharing" and "file hosting" aren't getting me anywhere, so I'm turning to the Green.
Remember, I'm running Ubuntu, so unfortunately something like HFS
isn't going to work for me, but that looks like what I want to do.
A GUI with simple drag/drop would be perfect.
