1 About Tentacle
Tentacle is a client/server file transfer protocol that aims to be:
- Secure by design.
- Easy to use.
- Versatile and cross-platform.
Tentacle was created to replace more complex tools like SCP and FTP for simple file transfer/retrieval, and switch from authentication mechanisms like .netrc, interactive logins and SSH keys to X.509 certificates. Simple password authentication over a SSL secured connection is supported too.
The client and server (TCP port 41121) are designed to be run from the command line or called from a shell script, and no configuration files are needed.
Since 2008, Tentacle is the default file transfer method for Pandora FMS
Tentacle is implemented in Perl and ANSI C (Windows platforms included).
You can download it and get more information at the official Sourceforge website .
