filetea - Web based file sharing service daemon


filetea [OPTIONS]


This manual page documents briefly the filetea command.

FileTea is a Web service that provides instant and anonymous file-sharing using only a standard browser as client. Unlike traditional Web based file-sharing services, FileTea does not store files server-side. Instead, files are just routed on-the-fly from seeder to leecher, through the server.

filetea is the service daemon that runs on a FileTea server. It handles peer synchronization, file routing and status reporting; and also acts as web-server for static HTML content when run in standalone mode.
