Is downloading from<hash> the only way, even if I know the node and file hash?

It seems that downloading an object from is the only way ? Even if I know the node’s hash and object hash ?

thank you very much,

Using is not recommended, it is only available for compatability with people you might want to send links to who don’t have any IPFS compatible software.

Using a local install of go-ipfs is the best way, or you can use a javascript node built into the browser extension in a pinch.

OIC, even for a hash on the remote node, I should just use it with the local ipfs daemon. I was wrong then - I thought local ipfs daemon only resolve objects on the local repo

thanks !
