Downloading from an Internet Linux Box to Local OMV

  • Hello,
    I own a linux box in the cloud. I'd like to be able to transfer files to my local OMV.
    On the Synology NAS, I'm able to link a remote directory using the SFTP protocol. Then I can choose the files/directories I want to transfer. Then the NAS does the transfer "alone", maybe all night long.

    With my local OMV, I saw that I'm able to make rsync syncronizations but in my case, I would like to be able to choose the files or directory I want to transfer, not using a cron job or something similar. Any ideas to perform this?

  • You could use Midnight Commander from a shell on the OMV box with a shell link, ftp link, or sftp link to the remote site.

    Google is your friend and Bob's your uncle!

    OMV AMD64 5.x on ASRock Rack C2550D4I C0 Stepping - 16GB ECC - Silverstone DS380 + Silverstone DS380 DAS Box.

  • OK, I'll have a look at Syncthing.
    The problem with midnight commander is that I would have to do it in a shell, and not from the webpage. The goal is to download selectively files that I have on a linux Torrent box.

    I'll keep you posted.

    Thank you

  • Both BtSync and Synchthing provide easy GUI options. Only difference is Syncthing is opensource and Resilio is not.

    That being said, I love resilio when moving data between servers, it works right out of the box, minimal work required on top of installing.
