It's good for basics ... tho lacks quota support which is a real pain in the ass.

If you have $$$ try http://www.serv-u.com/ ... I've used that for ages where I need quotas and Filezilla where I dont.

Also get a nice web interface for users with serv-u so they dont have to have FTP clients setup which they wont understand.

Cheers

I used G6 many many moons ago. I preferred it over serv-u at that time (talking 15 years ago). If you want an easy to use free FTP server that is stable and open source go with filezilla without a doubt.

Thanks guys,

I went with filezilla. I only need something lightweight for moving files between development area and live area on my pc/server easily using dreamweaver's inbuilt ftp to server. It seems to work like a dream.
Not wildly impressed with it's GUI but I should only need to use it once in a while.

Yeah the GUI is plain but then it's meant for servers so it does the job.

In most of the good FTP servers are anti-"hammering" something that is integrated into the server, since else it could be a security risk.

Ohhh I forgot about warftpd. If i remember correctly it was hard to setup and use all those years ago. Will have to try the new one and see if it has improved.

I have problem with filezilla server. It uploads to server OK but when I do a get from server (using dreamweaver) the file is created or overwritten locally with time and date but file is always empty. i.e. data in file doesn't get copied.
Any ideas on why that might be happening?

Are you using PASV or PORT? (use PASV if your not).

Getting back to FTP servers....

What Filezilla has that I haven't seen elsewhere is the ability to impose speed limits on the overall connection or login by login which is really helpful for long transfers to stop them hogging all the bandwidth

It can even be configured to change speed limit by time period

Just install IIS and go to options/configurations and select FTP components to be installed. If use use Win 2008 and IIS 7, the FTP server that comes with it can be set up as secured FTP (SSL). We have a working FTP on 2008 for http://www.realtimereferral.com and are pretty happy with it. You can allocated quotas or have a home directory for your users.

But you only need to have a MS License for every user you use there.

Not necessarily true.

Even for authenticated access, a single user can connect multiple times, even simultaneously. :wink:
On non-server platforms the number of concurrent connections is limited as per IIS limits (FTP is a sub-set of IIS)

When I made my first web site I decided to use Apache for this reason and the side benefit was more security, and never looked back. 8)

Almost forgot:

Actually it is 10 concurrent connections in windows XP, same for Vista and Windows 7 I believe.
Apache is 'just' (Yes I know better, open source and more widely used, etc) a web server. IIS also contains FTP, POP3 and an SMTP component to name a few.

It's rarely offline, but the last couple of days there has been at least two outages, both exceeding a couple of hours.

Either that or some bad network traffic somewhere. I was able to access evrything else I normally do on the web, just not hMailserver forums.

its been offline a couple of times for me too ... I think it needs a bit of a manual kick sometimes from Martin when patches have been applied, and theres been a couple of MS patches not on the usual tuesday, so might have been waiting for Martin to press the button

This is only when you have a connection license. If you have a user license, or a "Webserver" license you don't need users licenses if you are not in a domain. But i still prefer to have another ftp server instead of the IIS FTP Server because that one is a little les stable and unable to do some options you can only have with a seperated software FTP server.

not only when you use IIS FTP the users need to be in the local SAM to have acces to your system
Also by default (and you can not disable it) it is active FTP and passive FTP. you will never know when you have errors.
You need to setup a static portrange.

Open_FTP_FirewallPorts.bat

Code: Select all

Echo OFF


ECHO OPENING FIREWALL PORTS
FOR /L %%I IN (5500,1,5700) DO NETSH FIREWALL ADD PORTOPENING TCP %%I FTPPort%%I

ECHO FINISHED
Pause

and port 20 and port21 must also be opend 8)
