This feature shares most of the code with wiki/Printing.
This is not meant to replace a network filesystem, it is only there to facilitate the transfer of individual files between the client and server.
Assuming that file-transfers are enabled (see configuration options below). The client can send files to the server using the system tray upload menu:
The server can send files to the client using:
- the dbus interface: #904
- the xpra control interface, ie:
xpra control :10 send-file /path/to/the-file-to-send
Or to send to a specific client (or for older xpra versions):
xpra control :10 send-file /path/to/the-file-to-send open CLIENT_UUID
The client UUID can be seen with:
xpra info | grep uuid.
To send to all the clients, replace use "*". (quoted to prevent shell expansion)
The "open" flag may not be honoured by the client.
To debug this feature, use the flag
file-transferenables or disables all file transfers
file-size-limitthe maximum size (in MB) for file transfers
open-filesallows files to be opened after being received - which may be a security risk
open-commandthe command to use for opening files
