Re: Programs for direct friend-to-friend file transfer?
here's another interesting one:
From the description:
Woof (Web Offer One File) tries a different approach. It assumes that
everybody has a web-browser or a commandline web-client installed. Woof
is a small simple stupid webserver that can easily be invoked on a
single file. Your partner can access the file with tools he trusts (e.g.
wget). No need to enter passwords on keyboards where you don't know
about keyboard sniffers, no need to start a huge lot of infrastructure,
just do a
$ woof filename
and tell the recipient the URL woof spits out. When he got that file,
woof will quit and everything is done.
Requires Python to run, and obviously needs to run on a machine where
people can access the resulting URL (DNS listing, IP address accessible
to the outside world, etc.).
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is. .... Yogi Berra
