This question is a followup to How to copy files to an untrusted computer?, as there doesn't seem to be a dedicated app for this purpose, I am now searching for a http or ftp server as an alternative. More specifically I am searching for a lightweight server that is usable for simple one-time file transfer between computers. By that I mean it should act as rsync/scp replacement to get files from one computer to another, not as a classic web server. Furthermore it should:
- run in userspace
- be trivial to configure (i.e. no config file, everything doable via command line)
- support username/password
- support continuation of downloads
- support the export of single files instead of whole directories
dbr's answer to the previous question gets close, but is of course just an ad hoc hack that lacks many useful features.
