25 Gigatribe Premium Accounts for Ghacks Readers

Gigatribe is a software that creates a private Peer to Peer (P2P) network that offers a group of users, for example your friends and family, an easy way to share files securely. All communication is protected by a 256-bit Blowfish encryption so that no one can snoop on the files that you send and receive.

Files and Folders that you want to share can be simply added in the Gigatribe software with some additional features that are offered in the premium version. Gigatribe supports file resumes and a graphical presentation of which files are currently and have been transferred in the session.

Gigatribe offers chat functionality which runs over the secure connection as well. It is possible to send public or private messages and select the users that you want to chat with. You invite users to your network by searching for their username in the Gigatribe network, or by using sending them an email invitation through the same invite function. Only users invited this way will be able to join your network. And just the same, you can also accept or decline invitations from other GigaTribe users.

The Gigatribe software can be installed in a LAN as well as long as the computers in the network have their own IP address and own TCP ports.

The developers came up with an interesting solution to firewall and router configuration problems. Instead of fiddling around with router configurations you simply use the Easy Connect service which routes incoming traffic through the Gigatribe servers. Easy Connect is free for the 30 days and costs $17.99 per year if you want to continue using it. Well worth it in my opinion compared to all the testing and stress of making that damn router / firewall work with it. (It did work out of the box on my computer though which means I was able to connect without Easy Connect.)

Users with problems, connection wise or other difficulties, can email support directly who are very responsive and up to the point in their answers or use the forum to get help from other users and moderators.

The standard version of Gigatribe is free to use but has some limitations. The Premium version makes use of user groups (home, work for example) who have access to specific files. The standard version supports user groups as well but makes use of them only in the chat.

The premium version supports password protected files, choosing an authorization level (read only, read and write, all file operations) for your files and multi-source downloads if the file is available from other contacts as well.

A really nice feature is also limited to Premium users. You can access all of your shared files through a web interface and download them even if you do not have the Gigatribe software installed on this computer.

The offer has been completed. 27 users have received a free premium upgrade from the nice guys at Gigatribe. I suggest you take a look at the free version of Gigatribe and decided if you want to purchase the Premium version as well. It does has some advantages as outlined above and costs only $24.95 for a lifetime license.

      Six invitations are gone already, 19 to go. You have to either invite me in Gigatribe, post your username in the comments here at Ghacks or send me an email using your Username. Everything else is not working.

      Mike do one of those and you get your premium upgrade.
