Creating a file download task

To create a file download task:

  1. Select the Tasks section in the program web interface window.

    This opens the task table.

  2. Click the Add button and select Get file.

    This opens the task creation window.

  3. Configure the following settings:
    1. File path—Path to the file that you want to receive.

      If the requested file is linked to other NTFS data streams, running the task yields all files of NTFS data streams that the requested file is linked to.

      You can also specify the path to an alternate data stream of this file. In this case, you receive only the files of the specified stream.

      When creating a task, the program does not check if the specified path to the file that you want to receive is valid.

    2. MD5/SHA256—MD5- or SHA256 hash of the file that you want to receive. This field is optional.
    3. If you do not want to scan the file, clear the Send for scanning check box.

      The check box is selected by default.

    4. Description—Task description. This field is optional.
    5. Host—Host name or IP address of the server from which you want to receive the file.
  4. Click the Add button.

The file download task will be created. A file received through this task will be placed in Storage.

If the file download task completed successfully, you can download the received file to your local computer.

To download the received file to the local computer:

  1. Select the Tasks section in the program web interface window.

    This opens the task table.

  2. Open the task for receiving the file that you want to download.
  3. In the lower part of the Get file window, click the host name or IP address.

    This opens a window containing information about the file.

  4. Click Download.

The file will be saved to your local computer in the browser's downloads folder.

Users with the Security auditor role cannot create file download tasks.

Users with the Security officer role do not have access to tasks.
