Remote File Transfer

Definition - What does Remote File Transfer mean?

A remote file transfer is the process of transferring or sending a file to a device or network node external to the local network.

Techopedia explains Remote File Transfer

Remote file transfer is generally enabled through a file transfer application or file transfer protocol. Typically, remote file transfer first requires establishing a connection between the local and remote computer. This is generally done through a file transfer protocol such as FTP. Once the connection is created, the file can be transferred between both nodes. The remote device can be at a remote location, which is connected through a network connection or via the Internet.
