linux alternatives to direct connect

Hi all,

I was considering to set up a searchable home network to share files with my floormates. In the past, I used to used direct connect, which has a pretty good linux client, but has problems with the linux server. There even is a linux server version available, however it seems very buggy and is a royal pain to install.

So, the question is: Do you know of a DC-like filesharing solution to be used in a small home network that works out-of-the-box on linux?

Hints would be greatly appreciated.

maybe I’ve overlooked something, but I am well aware, that there is a working linux-client. The problem is, however, that the linux-server is buggy and a hassle to install. Therefore I am looking for an alternative to DC.
