Can't transfer a file OFF the Pi

Sun Sep 16, 2018 4:59 pm

Hi, very much a beginner, so please be gentle...

I am trying to move a small (~75kb) file from my Pi to my iMac. I have tried
  • * sending it as a webmail email attachment
    * dropping in to my Dropbox website
    * sending it to a Help desk via their web file transfer url
But all 3 methods fail. I can send a text email via the webmail, but as soon as I add an attachment, it fails.

Is there a setting within my Pi that is causing this blockage?

I am running Raspbian GNU/Linux 4.14.62 on armv71

TIA

Get a USB stick. Format it as FAT32 or exFAT (or NTFS) and try using that.

Perhaps describe how you are using those methods, the way in which they fail, what error messages you receive.

Presumably you can SSH from your iMac into the Pi?

In that case, the command "scp" works for me to move files between the Mac <> Pi.

Hello!
that’s running well between wiko smartphone and pc giada under ubuntu 12.04
if you are using bluetooth or wifi
try with these protocoles
you will have to set a ftp server on your smartphone
and use a ftp software on your pc (filezilla on windows)

About your question : can you send classical emails?
or are using web on each without errors?
If that’s the case of errors , solve it before using drop… and so on.

Good luck!
Philippe

No
I have no problem using my ISP's web based email client to send email attachments to myself so they can be retrieved on a different computer.
What exactly is the error message you are getting?
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Stretch w/ Desktop OS.
