SENDFILE(1)                                                        SENDFILE(1)



NAME
       fetchfile - fetch file(1,n)(s) via O-SAFT protocol


SYNOPSIS
       fetchfile  [  -lakdPriqQvVI  ]  [  -f  user  ]  [  -s [user@]server ] [
       -C[wr]=conffile ] filename

       fetchfile [ -lakdPriqQvVI ]  [  -f  user  ]  [  -s  [user@]server  ]  [
       -C[wr]=conffile ] -n filenumber


DESCRIPTION
       fetchfile fetches files from a SAFT server to the local user spool.

       In  the  SAFT  server  spool there must lay your sendfile(1,2) public key to
       identify yourself. This key can be generated by the fetchfile  -I  com-
       mand  and  has  to  be  transfered to the SAFT server at the very first
       time.  This prevents other people to steal your files.


       You may list or fetch your files from the server.  But  remember,  they
       are stored first in(1,8) your local sendfile(1,2) spool. You have to call receive
       to really receive them to your current directory.


OPTIONS
       -l      Only list the files on the server.

       -a      Fetch all files.

       -k      Keep files on server after fetching.

       -d      Delete files without receiving.

       -n      Specify the file(1,n) number instead of the file(1,n) name.

       -r      Call receive automaticly afterwards.

       -f user Restrict file(1,n) selection to this specifc user.

       -V      Show version(1,3,5) information and exit.

       -v      Be verbose and show SAFT protocol messages.

       -P      Send files to stdout directly.

       -i      Ignore testing whether file(1,n) has been already fetched.

       -q      Quiet mode 1: print no transfer messages.

       -Q      Quiet mode 2: print no transfer, information  or  warning  mes-
               sages.

       -I      Initialize fetchfile and the pgp key pair.

       -s [user@]host(1,5)
               Specify an alternate saft server and/or alternate user.

       -Cr=conffile
               Read configuration file(1,n) "config(1,5)" or "restrictions" from server.
