Can I download a file from a render web server

Is it possible to download a file (perhaps using ssh) from a render docker web service?

Hi Rajdeep,

We’re planning to implement this functionality soon. In the meantime, one workaround is to upload the file to a cloud object store like AWS S3 or Google Cloud Storage via a signed URL. (See https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/private-content-signed-urls.html or https://cloud.google.com/storage/docs/access-control/signed-urls.) An even easier workaround is to use magic wormhole

You would have to install the AWS or magic-wormhole cli in your docker image. Once installed, you can run the s3 upload or wormhole send command from the render shell.

After uploading the file, you can download it from s3 or receive it from wormhole.
