Package: Fleming File Sharing System
System name: ffss
This package does NOT want to apply for inclusion in the GNU project

It is a new powerful and easy to use file sharing protocol for LANs. It has 
been designed for the purpose a replacing samba (windows neighbourhood) on any 
small or big local networks.

FFSS somehow works like samba, that is a computer shares many folders, and a 
local computer connects to those shares, to retrieve or upload files.
But FFSS has many advantages to reduce the harmful effects of sharing lots of 
files on a pretty big network :
  - Shared files listing is hold in memory, so your HD will not be requested 
each time someone browse your shares. Faster, and noiseless.
  - Download and upload can be achieved using streaming (only supported mode by 
samba), or full file (FTP-like) using (or not, depending on your server 
configuration) checksum.
  - FFSS includes neteject functions : you can disable a share (no connection 
allowed), or set your server in silent mode (only file browsing allowed, no 
  - FFSS server includes a FTP compatibility option (all shares are retrievable 
from the FTP root directory).
  - A powerful search engine is included in the FFSS master, which allow very 
fast file search, using many tags (video, music, pictures, doc, zip, exe...)
