NAME

       sendfiled - Simple Asynchronous File Transfer server

SYNOPSIS

       sendfiled [ -d ] [ -f ] [ -q ] [ -Q ] [ -c configfile ]

DESCRIPTION

       sendfiled  is a server process (daemon) for the Simple Asynchrnous File
       Transfer (SAFT) protocol.  The server is normally  called  by  inetd(8)
       and  receives files or messages sent by SAFT-clients to the.  Files are
       stored in the  recipient’s  spool  and  messages  are  written  to  the
       recipient’s terminals.

       If  the  -d  option  is  specified, debugging information is written to
       /var/log/sendfiled.dbg.

       If the -f option is specified, sendfiled prints the free disk space  on
       /var/spool/sendfile and terminates.

       If  the  -q  option is specified, sendfiled processes once the outgoing
       spool and terminates.

       If the -Q option is  specified,  sendfiled  starts  an  outgoing  spool
       daemon, which runs in an endless loop in the background.

       On startup sendfiled reads its configuration file /etc/sendfile.cf, but
       you can specify with -c configfile an alternate configuration file.

       sendfiled is also an O-SAFT server, which means  authenticated  clients
       can fetch files.  See fetchfile(4) for details.

       sfdconf  is the sendfiled configuration helper program.  It has its own
       usage help, just type sfdconf -h
