Share files between any two computers easily using Gbridge

Looking for a free and easy way to create a VPN connection to another computer, share files, remote control or share screens between computers? Previously, I’ve written about another freeware app called Hamachi that you can use to create your own personal VPN, but I find it still requires a little too much technical knowledge that a newbie may not have.

That’s where Gbridge comes in. Basically, Gbrdige is a free tool you can use to sync folders, share files, control another computer, share your desktop, or chat. It connects two computers directly and securely.


Other programs do something very similar like CrossLoop and LogMeIn: download a client software, create an account, and connect to another computer running the client software.

Gbridge does the same thing, but has a couple of interesting features. Firstly, you do not have to create an account with Gbridge, all you need is a Gmail account. You log into the program using your Gmail username and password.

share large files

So if you want to quickly connect to a friends computer, just ask them to install the Gbridge client software and you can now send large files, instantly play MP3’s off each other’s computer, share your desktops, and even create photo slideshows from your folders and let others watch.


Gbridge also has some cool tecnhonolgy to make sure two computers can be connected even through firewalls and routers. It will try multiple ways to connect based on what works and which method is giving the highest performance. As a last resort, it can use GTalk to create a connection on top of the service.

This is great because you can be behind a corporate firewall or a NAT device and not have to configure a single thing. For those who want to connect two computers in a house or across the world, Gbridge will be able to do it.

Overall, it’s a great program with a lot of features and no restrictions! You can share very large files without a problem, share your desktop, and stream music and video to your computer from another.
