       fetchfile - fetch file(s) via O-SAFT protocol


       fetchfile  [  -46lakdPriqQvVI  ]  [  -f  user  ]  [ -s [user@]server ] [ -C[wr]=conffile ]

       fetchfile [ -lakdPriqQvVI ] [ -f user ] [  -s  [user@]server  ]  [  -C[wr]=conffile  ]  -n


       fetchfile fetches files from a SAFT server to the local user spool.

       In  the  SAFT  server  spool there must lay your sendfile public key to identify yourself.
       This key can be generated by the fetchfile -I command and has to be transfered to the SAFT
       server at the very first time.  This prevents other people to steal your files.

       You  may  list or fetch your files from the server. But remember, they are stored first in
       your local sendfile spool. You have to call receive to really receive them to your current


       -4, -6  Explicitly  force   IPv4 or IPv6 connections.  By default, the program will try to
               resolve the name given, and choose  the  appropriate  protocol  automatically.  If
               resolving  a host name returns both IPv4  and  IPv6  addresses, fetchfile will try
               to use the adresses in the order they are returned by the resolver.

       -l      Only list the files on the server.

       -a      Fetch all files.

       -k      Keep files on server after fetching.

       -d      Delete files without receiving.

       -n      Specify the file number instead of the file name.

       -r      Call receive automaticly afterwards.

       -f user Restrict file selection to this specifc user.

       -V      Show version information and exit.

       -v      Be verbose and show SAFT protocol messages.

       -P      Send files to stdout directly.

       -i      Ignore testing whether file has been already fetched.

       -q      Quiet mode 1: print no transfer messages.

       -Q      Quiet mode 2: print no transfer, information or warning messages.

       -I      Initialize fetchfile and the pgp key pair.

       -s [user@]host
               Specify an alternate saft server and/or alternate user.

               Read configuration file "config" or "restrictions" from server.

               Write configuration file "config" or "restrictions" to server.


       filename or filenumber
               Specify the name of the file or its number (with option -n).


       fetchfile -l

       fetchfile -a

       fetchfile -Cr=config -s


             Your local spool directory.

             Your local private spool directory if /var/spool/sendfile/$USER/ does not exist.

       config, restrictions
             Your configuration files for the server. See sendfile(1) for a description.


       receive(1), sendfile(1), fetchfile(7), sendfiled(8).
