PeSIT FUNCTIONS

Functions

Remote file-writing :
This function allows a PESIT user to transfer the contents of a file towards another PESIT user. To this end, the sender must first set up a logical connection with the remote party. The user setting up the call is known as the "Caller"; the remote user is called the "Server". In this case, the file (data) transfer occurs between the Caller/sender and the Server/receiver.

Remote file-reading :
This function allows a PESIT user to request another PESIT user to transfer the contents of a file. To this end, the user wanting to receive the file (the "Caller") must first set up a logical connection with the remote user the "Server"). In this case, the file (data) transfer takes place between the Server/sender and the Caller/receiver.

Setting checkpoints :
This function allows the file sender to insert indicators, known as checkpoints, numbered sequentially, in the course of the transfer. The party receiving the data can acknowledge these points, which signifies that he has correctly received and stored the data issued up to this point. This mechanism ensures that in the event of an error, a transfer can be restarted from a point other than the top of the file.
