I've been trying to search but keep getting results on how to remotely install Linux and how to send files to another Linux computer, and can't find what I'm trying to do.
I would like to be able to send a URL to my Linux PC from across a network or across the internet (I can set my router to give my PC an internet-side IP so this is not an issue).
I do not want to have to login using remote desktop. Just a simple interface preferably web-based to paste in a URL and have my Linux PC at home download whatever file I tell it to, and that's it. Is this possible? I can't find any packages that allow this and I don't always have access/permission to use a telnet client. For example, I might be trying to do this from a tablet or smartphone, or my work PC which does not allow telnet/ssh sessions nor does it allow said software to be installed. This is why I can't just login SSH and use wget.
This would be very handy for when I find software or large files when I'm not home that I would like to download, and I can begin the download remotely so that it's done when I get home.
I'm using Kubuntu 15.10 64-bit.
