F*EX use case: files from foreign users

You need a file from a foreign user?

You have the possibilities:

  1. subuser

    A subuser is a user who can only send files to you, but not to others.

    You can create your own subusers with "user config & operation control" (you see this link when you are logged in).

    A subuser can send you as many files as he wants.

  2. one-time upload key

    If you need just one file from a foreign user, then create a one-time upload key with "user config & operation control" (you see this link when you are logged in).

    This one-time upload key is an URL you have to give to your communication partner.

  3. public upload

    Public upload is similar to anonymous ftp: everybody can use it without registration or authentification.

    To use public upload the fexmaster has to set in /home/fex/lib/fex.ph the public recipients. Example:

      @public_recipients = ($admin,'framstag@rus.uni-stuttgart.de');
    
    Afterwards one can use http://YOURFEXSERVER/pup

    You may test it.
