UPnpLOAD - Dead simple file upload through UPnP routers

Your local files, world accessible from a simple URL.

  • Give a file, get a URL.
  • Limit number of downloads per-file.
  • No storage backend needed.

All you need is your router/wifi UPnP capable (most are), and of course, it must be enabled.

Usage

$ upnpload hello.txt world.txt
http://189.63.158.15:18182/hello.txt
http://189.63.158.15:18182/world.txt

Each file can be downloaded only once. Use -n to increase this value.

The same as before, but with some nice messages.

$ upnpload hello.txt world.txt -v
---> searching for UPnP router/wifi... http://192.168.1.1:1780/control?WANIPConnection (IP_Routed)
