Then configure anonymous mode:
Set in /home/fex/lib/fex.ph your local IP address ranges, example:
@anonymous_upload = qw(10.10.100.0-10.10.200.255 184.108.40.206);
Then you will see on http://YOURFEXSERVER/fup a link "You may also use anonymous upload"
Anonymous F*EX is like anonymous ftp: you need no personal account and you are anonymous. Because the anonymous user has no e-mail address the F*EX server cannot send automatic notification e-mails, you have to tell your recipient the download URL (you will see it when the upload has finished), e.g. by e-mail.
You can also use fexsend in anonymous mode, example:
fexsend big.file YOURFEXSERVER/anonymous
You can simplify anonymous F*EX for your Unix users by installing afex:
file input usage: afex files... file output usage: afex ID
With afex you can extremly easy copy files (including
whole directory trees) between any accounts on all hosts which are in the
For download you just need the afex ID which is a 6 digit number you will see after upload.
For quick _CENSORED_ (stream exchange) there is _CENSORED_send in anonymous mode, example:
tar cvf - . | _CENSORED_send YOURFEXSERVER/anonymousOn receiving side you need:
_CENSORED_get YOURFEXSERVER/anonymous | tar xvf -
You can simplify anonymous _CENSORED_ for your users by installing a_CENSORED_:
file input usage: a_CENSORED_ files... pipe input usage: ... | a_CENSORED_ file output usage: a_CENSORED_ ID - pipe output usage: a_CENSORED_ ID | ...
