Then configure anonymous mode:
Set in /home/fex/lib/fex.ph your local IP address ranges, example:
@anonymous_upload = qw(10.10.100.0-10.10.200.255 126.96.36.199);
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 SEX (stream exchange) there is sexsend in anonymous mode, example:
tar cvf - . | sexsend YOURFEXSERVER/anonymousOn receiving side you need:
sexget YOURFEXSERVER/anonymous | tar xvf -
You can simplify anonymous SEX for your users by installing asex:
file input usage: asex files... pipe input usage: ... | asex file output usage: asex ID - pipe output usage: asex ID | ...
wget -O- http://YOURFEXSERVER/afs.tar | tar xvf -
Alternative: easy bootstrap install
eval $(wget -qO- http://YOURFEXSERVER/afi|sh)
