Helm

What is it?

Helm is one of our attempts to help give you even more control over your files! While we already provide a very large number of ways to access your files, there's always the circumstance where you might not have access to the tool set or ports you need to use FTP, SSH, etc. Whether you're traveling, behind a school firewall, at a friend's house, or a public library, Helm aims to provide a more flexible way to manage your files.

If you have a slot already, you can try it at http://server.whatbox.ca/filebrowser/
