1 About Tentacle

Tentacle is a client/server file transfer protocol that is:

  • 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, automated interactive logins with expect, and SSH keys to X.509 certificates.

The client and server 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.
