       sendfiled - Simple Asynchronous File Transfer server


       sendfiled [ -4 | -6 ] [ -d ] [ -f ] [ -q ] [ -Q ] [ -c configfile ]


       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.

       The -4 and -6 options 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, sendfiled will try to use  the
       adresses in the order they are returned by the resolver.

       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/, 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


             Users which are not allowed to receive files or messages.

             Users which are ONLY allowed to receive files or messages. If this file has at least
             one entry, then /etc/sendfile.deny will be ignored.

             Alias names for local users. Format is:
                alias realname

             Log file for incoming files.

             default values.
