Sendfile is an asynchronous file transfer service for the Internet, like the sendfile facility in Bitnet: Any user A can send files to another user B without B being active in any way. Sendfile which is an implementation of the SAFT protocol (Simple Asynchronous File Transfer) offers you a true asynchronous file transfer service for the Internet. Virtually any form of file can be sent, including encrypted ones. The sendfile package contains 5 main programs: sendfiled - the sendfile daemon which will be started by inetd sendfile - the sendfile client for sending files sendmsg - the send-message client for sending one-line text messages receive - the receive client for picking up already received files fetchfile - the O-SAFT client to obtain files from a remote SAFT server
