Sending files

To send a file to a specific host, use the function

send_file(int host_id, const char* file_name)

or the command line program (run from the project root directory)

send_file -host_id X -file_name Y

send_file creates a result and initializes it with a name of the form send_FILENAME_HOSTID_TIME.

A message is created for the host and added to the msg_to_host table. This message instructs the client to download the file and acknowledge a successful download. The download message included in the next RPC reply to the host. The message has the form:


For this to work, you need to include <msg_to_host/> in config.xml.
