File management service
SourceForge.net provides a centralized file management service, allowing developers a variety methods for managing files for their developer web content, their project web content; or uploading files to the File Release System (FRS).
The file management service supports the following protocols. Client software for all of these protocols is available for all modern Operating Systems. Due to support for resume of failed transfers, we recommend the use of rsync over SSH. Since rsync over SSH requires a command-line client, users who need a graphical (GUI) client are encouraged to use SFTP.
Protocol-specific information includes instructions on how to use that protocol to upload each type of supported data (file releases, project web data, developer web data).
