GS-SFTP(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		    GS-SFTP(1)

NAME
     gs-sftp --	Secure File Transfer Protocol via Global Socket.

SYNOPSIS
     gs-sftp [-lTR] [-s	secret]	[-k keyfile]

DESCRIPTION
     The gs-sftp utility is a wrapper script for gs-netcat. It allows two
     users to establish	a secure SFTP connetion	via the	Global Socket Relay
     Network (GSRN). This is useful in a scenario where	both users are behind
     NAT/Firewall and unable to	connect	to each	other directly.

OPTIONS
     -s	secret
	     A password	chosen by the user. Both users need to use the same
	     password to connect.

     -k	FILE
	     A file containing the password.

     -l	     Server mode. The default mode is client.

     -R	     Places server (-l)	into a read-only mode. Attempts	to open	files
	     for writing, as well as other operations that change the state of
	     the filesystem, will be denied.

     -T	     Use TOR. The gs-sftp tool will connect via	TOR to the GSRN. This
	     requires TOR to be	installed and running. The IP and PORT of the
	     TOR server	can be set using environment variables.

     See gs-netcat(1) for more options.

EXAMPLES
     Example 1 - SFTP Server listening for clients using password 'MySecret':
	   $ gs-sftp -s	MySecret -l

     Connect sftp-client using the same	password:
	   $ gs-sftp -s	MySecret

ENVIRONMENT
     See gs-netcat(1) for a list of supported environment variables.

SEE ALSO
     gs-netcat(1), sftp(1)

BUGS
     Efforts have been made to have gs-sftp "do	the right thing" in all	its
     various modes. If you believe that	it is doing the	wrong thing under
     whatever circumstances, please notify me (skyper@thc.org) and tell	me how
     you think it should behave.
