Some internet utilities part – I

January 1, 2008

This post is to share with you some tools and utilities that i have bumped upon while i keep surfing the internet. A few of them are freewares and a few of them are commercially sold. These tools have helped me increase my efficiency and provide accesability and i hope you find them as useful as i did.

So first to start with is Purplenova web server. This easy to install and configure software is useful when you want to host your files and access the same from internet (that means from anywhere). I have run this ftp software from my home laptop so that i can access certain files from my office. Apart from providing plain ftp access, this software provides a host of other features like hosting web sites, exposing web services, etc. Although these features come with the commercial version 😦 . A cool feature is that you can subscribe to RSS feeds so whenever i upload a file you can get a notification. Another one is you can categorise your files for public or private access. The file that is only privately shared has to be accessed by hitting the url. I have created my internet share at .

Next on my list is Terminals.A remote desktop client which you can use to store and configure different RDP connections. Earlier I used to save each RDP connection on desktop and double click them when i needed to connect. Managing all the saved connections was cumbersome and the desktop looked ugly . This utility manages all the connections without making your desktop look ugly. Since it shows each connections in a tabbed pane, switching between connection is easy. A must download for anyone who remote connects to different hosts for file upload, deploy, troubleshoot etc.

Well will end the Part one of this post here. Stay tuned to for more updates on this topic

And Wish you a very happy and a prosperous new year 2008
