Account & Setup

If you haven’t caught on yet, here’s how Binfer operates: you install it on the computers you want to share files from. Then, you can connect to a computer using a web-based management tool from anywhere and oversee your file transfers. All transfers occur directly from that computer, ensuring nothing is uploaded to our servers.

From there, you can connect to a device and set up jobs for file sharing, syncing, or transferring. Additionally, you’ll be able to view reports, check available storage space, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

When your computer restarts, Binfer, installed as a service, will automatically start and run in the background without needing you to log in to a user account. However, if you’ve used the desktop installer, you’ll need to log in to a user account to enable Binfer startup.

Think of this as your control center. Accessible from any web browser, it lets you connect to any device in your environment and manage all your file transfer tasks. It can be Binfer Managed or Self Managed.

While the software resides within your environment, it offers two distinct modes of management:

  1. Binfer Managed: In this mode, the administrative console is maintained on our secure servers, providing a hassle-free management experience.
  2. Self Managed: Opt for this mode if you prefer to host the administrative console within your own infrastructure for enhanced control and security. You will need a special server license for this. Contact Sales if this is what you are looking for.

For a comprehensive understanding of these management modes, please read the Installation Options guide.
