can anyone suggest a good site for uploading sigs for free? except sigrealm which dosent work for me anymore. I have taken an interest in making sigs and i want to be able to make em for ppl and myself, what i mean is i can make them but have no where to upload em too" bit stoopid aint it! :confused:
hope yal can help :rock:
and is it possible to upload them staright from your PC to your profile? not to a web site then doing the addy thing
well, these days *most* isps ome with a free-hosting service, with no ads, ring your isp to find out if they have one, the 2 things you can do is,
register on one of thousghs online hard drive thinggys, like 50megs, xdrive etc.
if you have adsl, and a alays on computer, you could think about setting up a ftp, which as well as hosting a sig, could also host files that you need to dl form work or skool.
so say if you IP was 126.96.36.199 and your sig was called sig.gif the link to get to the gif ould be http://2302.51.87.21/sig.gif
her is a link for Bullet Proof FTP Server http://www.bpftpserver.com/
theere u go dude:uhm: :deal:
I would not suggest hosting an FTP server on your home computer as it leaves a open port for hackers to get into your system.
sorry, yoshi, but i have to disagree, if you get a TOp of the range FTP, like Globalscape FTP or something, it has a bouilt in firewall, and when you set it up, only open port 21, hich anyways is usaly Always open by defualt
If you have the ftp, and a firewall, like noton personal firewall, its really quite secure, and you can just make shure you set up anonymous to only go to a folder, or read the readme on the sitei gave ya :deal: :fistpunch:
Hmm, that's interesting. I didn't realize that FTP servers could work through a firewall. Never mind what I said up there then :)
First in answer to the topic try lycos they do a free 50mb web page hosting, ideal for sigs.
Ok firewalls and ftp's :) Yoshi is right, if u run an ftp and i do (not port 21) Never use port 21 as this is the typical port all hacker wannabe's scan..
For an ftp to work through a firewall u have to tell firewall to allow it, this then opens the port for any hacker wannabe to exploit..
Im use IPcop as router/firewall thus a seperate linux PC which is by far better then Norton.
I have no anonymous access only set firends and they can only connect via 1 IP each and still my system his open to the world via that port.. I use a top of the range ftpd, and even with all the security i try to set an open port is an open port... 99% of all ftp programs and O/S's have security holes. Don't be fooled in to thinking u are safe behind Norton as it is actually a crappy firewall, looks pretty with all it's flashing bits and bob's and thats about it..If u need a reasonable windows firewall that uses few resources and stops quite a bit us Blackice daemon...
right back to having fun...
This is what I use really easy.Hopes this helps!;) http://mohaa.cact-sd.org/upload.php
