I’ve got two programs named siphon. One of them actually is called Log Siphon, and the other is just siphon. And unfortunately, only one will get a proper shakedown today.
Not sure what that’s about. 😦
But actually siphon sends files over a network connection, given just an address and perhaps a destination folder. Take a look:
Granted, that’s just doubling back to myself, but it seems to work. I don’t have an arrangement that would allow me to actually loop it across a router or hub right now. 😦
siphon is exceptionally simple, but needs to be running on both machines to work. No daemons, just one listening and one sending. Remind you of anything?
The first criticism of siphon will be that there’s no provision for security or encryption. If I understand the home page, it’s intended to be Unixy, and so you should be looking for ancillary tools to handle that for you, if those things are concerns.
Now if only I could find a way of setting up an Direct Cable Connection. … 😯
