"Share your clipboard across your network."
XL Share Board is a program to enable the sharing of both clipboard information and files across a local area network (LAN).
Textual information and images can be shared using the drag and drop interface that comes as part of the XL Share Board software interface. The clipboard can be shared between users who turns the local Windows clipboard into a LAN-ready sharing tool which is very cool. Any files and folders stored locally can also be shared across a network.
Sometimes we email ourselves photos or files that we wish to gain access to on another device. XL Share Board can provide a way to do this without all the messing around of opening up the web mail, adding the file as an attachment, sending it, then hopping on to the other PC, signing into the email, accessing the new email, and finally opening the attachment. Imagine doing this a few times and you begin to see the benefit of being able to more easily share files across a network whether at home or in an office environment.
There are versions of XL Share Board for both Windows and Mac operating systems which also makes it easier to transfer files between platforms and not only computers on the same platform.
Maintains a history of all files and images shared to different users.
Communication can also be encrypted to ensure that it is not intercept within the network should the network has a silent intruder.
