NAME

       sendfiled - Simple Asynchronous File Transfer server

SYNOPSIS

       sendfiled [ -4 | -6 ] [ -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.

       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
       /usr/local/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

             this    file     has     at     least     one     entry,     then
             /usr/local/etc/sendfile.deny will be ignored.

       /usr/local/etc/sendfile.aliases
             Alias names for local users. Format is:
                alias realname

       /var/spool/sendfile/LOG/in

       /var/spool/sendfile/LOG/out
             Log file for outgoing files.

       /usr/local/etc/sendfile.cf
             The  system  configuration  file.  See  sfdconf  -i  config for a
