The File Transfer
Protocol is used for transferring files. The access to a file system
is done with consideration to the users rights. For using this server,
you must add users to your server environment and add to every user
an objects pointing to the FTP Server. Then you can define access
parameters for every user.
only global option is the port used for this server. The default
We want to give access to a user to the "/dir/" directory
on the local file system:
- Add a new FTP Server.
- Add a new user.
- Go to the newly added user and add to it
the new server (as an object).
- Select the added object and set the "root"
variable to "/dir/"
- Start the server !
The current version of the FTP server does not support all the commands
specified in the File Transfer Protocol. It can not resume transfers.
However you can use it with success with almost any FTP client.
I have tested it with FTPExpert, SmartFTP, Windows Internet Explorer
and Opera. If you find any bugs please send
a bug report.
