FTP Server

     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.
     The only global option is the port used for this server. The default is 21.

     Example: We want to give access to a user to the "/dir/" directory on the local file system:

  1. Add a new FTP Server.
  2. Add a new user.
  3. Go to the newly added user and add to it the new server (as an object).
  4. Select the added object and set the "root" variable to "/dir/"
  5. Start the server !

     Important: 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.
