Description:

They said it couldn't be done.

They were wrong.

This script allows those who are behind firewalls to send files to someone who is not behind a firewall. If both you and the receiver are behind firewalls, this won't work for you.

This script uses the client's builtin tcp socket capabilities to establish a connection between the receiver (who does the bind) and the sender (who does the connect). The sender uuencodes the file and pipes the encoded data over the socket to the receiver, who uudecodes and writes it to a file.

History:

This script was written by archon and first appeared in epic3.001.
