Remote file access (like dropbox)

Wed Jul 11, 2012 6:59 am

Can someone explain me how to send files from city a (pc) to city b (rpi) without need to open ports on a router? Since Dropbox aint working on the rpi i need an alternative, without a operating system like debian (couse im using OpenELEC) i cant experiment with Filezilla and his FTP sync...

If you know a solution please give me some details, im a rpi newbee.

Try owncloud. It works a lot like dropbox and only uses port 80 (webserver). It is pretty easy to install and set up. I have had it working on my Pi.

I wrote a small tutorial for beginners to make a shared folder with ssh simulating dropbox. I hope it helps someone :!: http://pikiosk.tumblr.com/post/39853365 ... x-sftp-mac :!:
