Run a python one-liner webserver to grab files.

logo - workaround

NOT TO BE USED AT PRODUCTIVE SYSTEMS! You have to read, understand and accept the disclaimer .

Sometimes one needs to access resources from a linux-machine, where you do not want to setup a permanent share of some kind.

As python is preinstalled at linux mint (and many/all) other linux distros one can make us of a simple built-in webserver by simply switching at the directory one wants to access remotely at the host and run:

			
python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8080

		

A short test using a web-browser at the host-machine should show the related files/folders for: http://localhost:8080

Using the IP (or a resolvable name) of the host-machine at the client adding the used port (8080) to the url http://<the-host-machine>:8080 will list files and subdirectories - which can be downloaded this way.

To stop/interrupt the webserver, it's enough to press CTRL+C at the host-machine.

WARNING/HINT: the simple webserver will be exposed to all network interfaces. Thus it should NOT be used at machines being exposed to the internet.

If the firewall at the host-machine is blocking incoming connections, you could temporarily turn off the firewall, grab your files, and turn on the firewall again afterwards.

systemd firewalld service commands


#check firewall-state
sudo systemctl status firewalld.service

# turn firewall off
sudo systemctl stop firewalld.service

#turn firewall on
sudo systemctl start firewalld.service

			

(older) ufw service commands


#check firewall-state
sudo service uwf status

# turn firewall off
sudo service uwf  stop

#turn firewall on
sudo service uwf start

			

Good luck - have fun.
