Need To Transfer Large Files

Post by Shootprosupport » Thu Aug 24, 2017 4:29 pm

I work for a videographer that regularly transfers large video files with our remote office overseas from the USA. I figured Softether vpn would help. Would it be simple to create a a shared folder they can access by having a vpn to our network? Currently we are using ftp and it takes a long time to transfer files. I was thinking of setting up softether server. There are only 2 or 3 people that need access to the files for editing. I'm trying to find the simplest solution to save money on installing windows server since the files don't need to be stored on our servers. Once they are edited, the files go back to the videographer, so I see no reason to have a file server just to transfer files. I'd welcome any thoughts and suggestions.

If you don't want to encrypt the communication, you don't need to use VPN.
If network quality is enough, FTP will work good than file sharing.
I think you should find good FTP server.
