Output Messenger provides two type of modes to transfer your files in secure and fast manner. Those are:
- Transfer directly between Clients – P2P
- Transfer through Server & Archive in Folder
You can find these options under the heading ‘File Transfer Mode’ in “Server Manager > Configuration”.
1. Transfer directly between Clients – P2P
By default, the P2P direct file transfer mode will be in enabled status.
How it works
This mode uses direct P2P connection and lets you connect to your colleague’s computer, and transfer any file fast and secure. It will work only for desktop clients in the same local network.
Remote clients and mobile devices cannot function in this direct mode. Hence, when you try to transfer files to Remote Clients, the files will be transferred via Server automatically.
Note: In this direct P2P file transfer mode, the files won’t be saved in Server although the files transferred through Server for Remote Clients.
- Fastest File Transfer
2. Transfer through Server & Archive in Folder
To enable this mode of file transfer, choose the option “Transfer through Server & Archive in Folder” and “Save & Restart Server“.
How it works
Through this mode, all your files will be routed to / routed from Server. So, the process might consume time when compared to P2P direct file transfer.
At this mode, all the transferred files will be saved (logged) in your Server.
- Since files are stored in Server, you can download any time.
Go with the file transfer mode that will be suitable for your business and enjoy the Chat.
