You guys did great but "FTP Access" would be the only thing nocks out the competitors

Cyberduck doesn't work with everything.
You can connect with a special gateway, manage small files (<100MB) but not bigger files. I dont know who is to blame, but cyberduck & hubic use different chunk file management. See my post about it: https://forums.hubic.com/showthread....swift-browsing

Just follow this: https://api.hubic.com/sandbox/

The last step gives you an access_token and the URL for the swift storage when you go to

https://api.hubic.com/console/#/account/credentials#GET and click the execute button.

I am planning a standalone version of my gateway (without the need for an apache installation) which may be of use. It still will be a gateway but pretty easy to use because you do not need a complicated setup. Sadly my time for private projects is currently limited.

Hubic should be a great service but without a way to put files on the cloud without sync, all this space is useless. Competitors have these features for example to map a virtual drive on a windows drive letter and/or ftp/sftp/webdav access.
I like the 10TB plan but actually, with these limitations, has no use.
I can understand that 10TB is only to attract users and pratically you have probably no enough space to accomodate lot of users that make a real utilization of those 10TB.
Create a 5Tb or 3TB plan with ftp and webdav access with the same cost as the actual 10TB plan and you'll get a lot of happy customers ready to pay for the service.

Though this recommendation looks to have potential I have been unable to connect to my Hubic cloud object with Cyberduck. By my understanding this is due to the extra OAuth required by Hubic, which is an extra addition of security added on top of the Swift object that standard Swift browsing programs do not support. For example, the software Cyberduck, Duplicati, Duplicity, Cloudberry Explorer, and Expand Drive all can connect to a standard Swift cloud object. However, they cannot connect to Hubic without a "gateway" server that handles the OAuth. If someone could give a clear tutorial on how to interface with Hubic without any extra or specialized software I (and many others) would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you
I found this video: http://youtu.be/EP8ItV1uIOc
Which shows how to use ftp-cloudfs in Linux command line but not very useful for me. I wanted pure FTP to use with my IP Camera.

Thank you Vincent
That is awesome! But it was too complicated. I really did not get how to do it.
Is there any tutorial that I can use for starting my FTP?

Hi Yami,

Hubic is based on Openstack Swift. It's a cloud object storage and APIs are public. Some apps could use it (http://cyberduck.io/).
If you really want a FTP access on your account, you could use a gateway as https://github.com/cloudfs/ftp-cloudfs.
Openstack credentials are available on hubiC API : api.hubic.com.

Regards,
Vincent

I love hubic and all its features.

The moment I read about it, I started using it and introduced to others too. But let me tell you something...

IF you guys do not let FTP Access, you will have hard time fighting with competitors. Open FTP Access and I promise you in a week you will pass Dropbox and all other in all metrics.

I know FTP Access brings lots of security concerns but just imagine what do you get in return. Millions of PAID Customers. I personally will remain Free until you give FTP Access.

I am sure there are ways to open FTP ports, at least with limit in bandwidth or just FTP Access to an specific folder (not all of them) and keep customers happy.
