No, I do not need paid access, just control. Sometimes we need to send people large files, e.g. 50+ MB, and since you can't email that I like the idea of having a corporate download site on a subdomain. I also want a public downloads directory and, say, an "employees only" (group) directory. I'm currently considering a program called SecureLoads <http:// www.secureloads.com/>. It looks promising, but I've already come across a bug just using the demo. Part of the reason I like open-source software I guess. Thousands of eyes find and fix bugs a lot faster than a small staff at some company somewhere.... ;) Stephen On Feb 14, 2008, at 3:47 PM, Pringle, Ron wrote: > Are you looking to charge for access, or just control access?
