You also brought up another issue: Buying an SSL certificate to secure the entire web site. SSL certificates only secure information transferred between your web browser and a web server. Since [ file ai ] uses a Java Applet to transfer the files peer-to-peer, having an SSL certificate on the site won’t affect that in any way.
But yes, it would help in the overall security “feel” of the site.]]>
However, at this stage, it is not worth the investment. Perhaps, once you get past the ‘beta’ phase, it’ll be a good idea… I still think it would be good to have a alternate non-applet version.]]>
