Currently this feature is disabled and not working 😥!

Have you ever had a situation when working in a server without a user interface and you need to copy some log files to the local machine. It is not an easy task, isn`t it? A few years ago organization Mozilla announced an amazing product for sharing files with end-to-end encryption Firefox Send. This product is opensource and what it means? You can host it on your network. Sounds amazing! 🚀

Firefox Send has a lot of nice features like private sharing, restrict downloads with a password, set expiration time, etc. But stop, this product is for sharing files from the browser, but we need to share files from the terminal 🤔.

Tool ffsend

Software developer Tim Visee has written the command-line tool ffsend which is fully featured Firefox Send client. Tool is well documented and easy to use.

What I like using this tool, that you can share a directory directly. Tool by them self archive it and share 📦.


It supports a lot of operating systems: Linux, macOS, Windows, FreeBSD, Android, etc. For my Windows machine, I used installation using scoop.

Invoke-Expression (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('')

# or shorter
iwr -useb | iex

scoop install ffsend
ffsend --help
Install ffsend on Windows using Powershell

Happy sharing!️ 🔨
