A third party is not required. For the occasional transfer of files the
address (if it changes) may be obtained from the router and emailed to
the friend.

There are some nice aspects to this script. Being able to use a browser
is one; having the download require a username and password and being
able to serve the contents of a directory are others. The OP could do
worse than install and use it. It looks like it would install on Squeeze
and Wheezy.

Thanks for drawing servefile to our attention.
