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. one day upload key

    If you need several files from foreign user(s), then you can create a one day upload key with "user config & operation control" (you see this link when you are logged in).
    Or you can call:

    fexsend -U

    which generates an upload URL and a shell function that you can give your communication partners.

  4. 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.
