RemoteFileAgent works with the FileManager to securely transfer encrypted files to the user’s domain and to control the file access right of the requesting user within an active directory. Transfer of files is managed over NOACOMM which uses blocklevel based checksums to guarantee a safe delivery of even large files. RemoteFileAgent has also the ability to garbage collect it´s user directories upon dedicated rules such as file age or folder size.
In addition to file deliveries RemoteFileAgent also is able to collect the LDAP directory of a user domain and register the users as mediARC users. This allows then for a simple integration in existing Active Directory structures. In case of foreign Active directories such as with Remote Stations, this allows even easier integration of user management within mediARC.
