filetran

This is a very simple program to transfer a single file from one machine to another. I've used this while playing with docker containers and transfering some config files to my nexus 7 running Arch. This was a quick and easy way to use node to solve a problem I had ;)

Install

npm install filetran -g

Usage

Run the program in one of two modes:

Mode Description
Server Setup to send or receive a file.
Client Connect to a server to send/recieve a file

filetran <cmd> [opts] <file>

cmd

  • send: send a file to another filetran process.
  • receive: receive a file from another filetran process.

opts

  • port, -p, --port: The port to connect to or to listen on.
  • host, -h, --host: The host to connect to.
    • The host option can be used on either send or receive. (But not both at once.)
    • If the host is not specified, it acts as a server. (Run this first).
    • If a host is specified, it acts as a client. (Run this second).

file

  • The filename to read from or write to. (The filenames do not need to match.)

Example

You should start the server first, the client needs to connect to this. To start a server, just don't specify the host.

Send:
filetran receive -p 8790 test-file

The server is now listening on port 8790, and will write what it receives to a file called test-file.

Receive:
filetran send --host new-host --port 8790 test-file

The client is now connecting to port 8790, and will send the contents of test-file to the server.
