The following topics lists the PeSIT states:

Roles of transfer partners

Although each transfer occurs between only two transfer partners, each transfer partner plays two roles:

  • Sender or Receiver (the file is sent or received)
  • Requester or Server (the transfer request is sent or received)

For a given transfer, only the following combinations of partner roles are possible:

  • Sender/Requester and Receiver/Server (The partner that sent the file requested the transfer).
