-====== About Tentacle ====== 
-Tentacle is a client/server file transfer protocol that is: 
- 
-  * Safe by design. 
-  * Easy to use and integrate with other tools. 
-  * Versatile and cross-platform. 
- 
-Tentacle was created to replace more complex tools like SCP and FTP for simple file transfer/retrieval, and switch from less safe authentication systems like **.netrc**, as well as automated interactive logins with **expect**, and SSH keys, to start using a certification based on the standard X.509, using certificates. 
- 
-The client and server are designed to be run from the command line or called from a shellscript. Since [[https://pandorafms.com/blog/good-old-style-documentation-manpages/|2008]], Tentacle is the default file transfer method for Pandora FMS, replacing SCP.  
- 
-Tentacle is implemented in Perl and ANSI C (Windows platforms included). 
- 
-You can download it and find more information at the [[http://tentacled.sourceforge.net|official Sourceforge project website]].
