fetchfile - fetch file(s) via O-SAFT protocol


fetchfile [ -46lakdPriqQvVI ] [ -f user ] [ -s [user@]server ] [ -C[wr]=conffile ] filename

fetchfile [ -lakdPriqQvVI ] [ -f user ] [ -s [user@]server ] [ -C[wr]=conffile ] -n filenumber


fetchfile fetches files from a SAFT server to the local user spool.

In the SAFT server spool there must lay your sendfile public key to identify yourself. This key can be generated by the fetchfile -I command and has to be transfered to the SAFT server at the very first time. This prevents other people to steal your files.

You may list or fetch your files from the server. But remember, they are stored first in your local sendfile spool. You have to call receive to really receive them to your current directory.


-4, -6
Explicitly force IPv4 or IPv6 connections. By default, the program will try to resolve the name given, and choose the appropriate protocol automatically. If resolving a host name returns both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, fetchfile will try to use the adresses in the order they are returned by the resolver.
Only list the files on the server.
Fetch all files.
Keep files on server after fetching.
Delete files without receiving.
Specify the file number instead of the file name.
