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:
|Protocol||Max recommended file size||Failed uploads can be resumed?||Authentication||Supported clients|
|Web upload||20MB||No||Site username and password||Web browser|
|WebDAV||20MB||No||Site username and password||MS Windows native, OS X native, cadaver (Linux/BSD), others|
|SFTP||Unlimited||No||SSH key or site username/password||Filezilla, WinSCP, OpenSSH|
Rsync over SSH
Rsync has the distinct advantage of supporting resume on uploads, which can be a life saver on large file transfers. It also can validate the file on send and many other neat functions. Should you elect to use this method, we recommend you read the rsync documentation to select the ideal options for your needs, though a reasonable default is used in the example provided below. Rsync is available for every major platform, though Windows users will need to go through a bit more effort to set it up. We recommend that Windows users download and install the Cygwin environment and use rsync with SSH at the command line, which would look identical to the example provided below.
Examples of creating an Rsync over SSH session are included here.
