Thru Transport Client

The Transport Client is a simple command line agent which pushes or pulls over a secret key via the Thru Web API.
It acts as an endpoint which pushes all pending files from a source folder hierarchy, or pulls all pending delivery files from the Thru server to a target folder hierarchy.
