The original archive was lost after a fire brought our site down.
Most of those files have been recovered and are now on this server.
I still need your help with this project as FSP (File Service Protocol) software seems to have become either virtually extinct or outdated as of Windows 10.
If you have anything that isn't archived here and would like to share it with us, then please contact me.
This site also tries to list a few active (or at least simi-active) FSP sites.
I may be ripping through pages of old source code to compile a basic manual...
Until then, here's the old FAQs --- and the most recent FAQ.
If you have usenet then alt.comp.fsp might prove to be a useful sorce of information and communication.
Google Groups is archiving most of the original Usenet articles pertaining to fsp. There's alot of good information to be found there if you don't care to search a little.
You can click the following link to access Google's archive of alt.comp.fsp via Google Groups.
fspd -d /path/to/your/files -p 21 -T /path/to/your/upload/directory -l /path/to/your/log/file fspd in.fspd -d /path/to/your/files -p 21 -T /path/to/your/upload/directory -l /path/to/your/log/fileExamples of starting fspd in a Windows enviroment:
fspd.exe -d /path/to/your/files -p 21 -T path/to/your/upload/directory -l path/to/your/log/file fspd.exe -d C:\path\to\your\files -p 21 -T C:\path\to\your\upload\directory -l C:\path\to\your\log\file fspd.exe -d C:\path\to\your\files -p 21 -T C:\path\to\your\upload\directory -l C:\path\to\your\log\fileThe arguments used to start FSPd are only slightly different over multiple operating systems.
Remember that FSP was originally intended to be an underground society, based on security by obscurity. The fact that this site and the following list exists undermines what a lot of people want to use FSP for. For the above reasons this may never become a heavily populated list.
As of Apr 25, 2021 the "up time" for the below FSP servers are based upon my ability to connect.
The fsp hyperlinks work with most versions of Elinks
Got a FSP site to add to the list? Contact Me.
I do check that email address for submissions, and
I will be happy to put your FSP server on this list.
I'm constantly updating this site.
Don't see what your looking for? Check back in a few days.
This little collection of FSP software has been growing at a nice rate.
So far I have been able to add something to the site at least once a week.
There's even FSP tools for Dos, OS2, and Mac in the downloads directory now.
This may be the last site archiving all known (by me) FSP client / server software.
I would greatly appreciate any additions to the archives.
If you are running a FSP server (and want it listed) I would be happy to add it to the site list.
