You are here

Working environment and teaching support

It is a web application developed by RedIRIS. This application will allow us to send or receive files of large volumes (up to 2GB).

How to use

It is very important to emphasize that to use this service, the sender or receiver must belong to the RedIRIS community. That is why we will have to authenticate with our credentials.

Service features

  • Allows you to send / receive files up to 2GB
  • File expiration date
  • Notifications of use via email.


Here we tell you the three basic operations:

  • Send a file
  • Check the history of my transfers
  • Receive a file via invitation


Send a file by email

Suppose we are members of the RedIRIS community and we want to send a file to someone.

Access to




Click on "Iniciar sesión"



Choose the institution to which we belong (for example, the UPC) and click on "proceed".
The authentication page of the chosen school will appear. Enter our credentials



The following page will appear, from which we can indicate the files that we want to send and the recipients.

A: -> one or more addresses separated by commas
Subject (optional)
Message (optional)

Click on the "Select files" button and select the files that we want to send.

Click on the "Send" button.



The follow-up of the delivery will appear, indicating if it has finished correctly.


Check my transfers

Click on the "My Transfers" tab. The list of transfers you have made appears.



Here you can forward a file, delete it, view the record, or send a reminder. You have the options on the right, in "Actions".


Receive a file by email

This option will allow us to receive a file from someone who does not belong to a registered institution. The mechanism to do this is to send us an invitation, and then, he will receive a "token" with which he can upload the file.

First, we start the session in the filesender service and go to the "Guests" tab.



We put the email address of the person who wants to send the file and, if we want, a subject and an explanatory text. We send you the invitation, and he will receive an email with the following content:



By clicking on the link, the filesender service will open directly where the guest can send us the file.
