Setting Up Anonymous FTP Access to the Server

Date Created: 25 Mar, 2008   (10 year(s) ago) Viewed: 801 Rating: 

Overview

If you host a site on a dedicated IP address, you can set up a directory within the site, where other users will be able to anonymously download or upload files through FTP. Once anonymous FTP is enabled, the users will be able to log in to the ftp://ftp.your-domain.com with the "anonymous" login name and any password.

To allow anonymous FTP access:
  1. On your Home page, click the domain name you need.

  2. Click the Anonymous FTP icon.

  3. To activate anonymous FTP service, click the Switch On icon.

  4. To set up a welcoming message to be displayed when users log in to FTP site, select the Display login message check box and type the message text in the input field as desired.

    Note that not all FTP clients display welcoming messages.


  5. To allow visitors to upload files to the /incoming directory, select the Allow uploading to incoming directory check box.

  6. To allow users to create subdirectories in the /incoming directory, select the Allow creation of directories in the incoming directory check box.

  7. To allow downloading files from the /incoming directory, select the Allow downloading from the incoming directory checkbox.

  8. To limit the amount of disk space that can be occupied by uploaded files, clear the Unlimited check box corresponding to the Limit disk space in the incoming directory option, and specify the amount in kilobytes.

    This is the hard quota: the users will not be able to add more files to the directory when the limit is reached.


  9. To limit the number of simultaneous connections to the anonymous FTP server, clear the Unlimited check box corresponding to the Limit number of simultaneous connections option and specify the number of allowed connections.

  10. To limit the bandwidth for anonymous FTP connections, clear the Unlimited check box corresponding to the Limit download bandwidth for this virtual FTP domain option and enter the maximum bandwidth in kilobytes per second.

  11. Click OK.

To modify settings for anonymous FTP server or switch it off:
  1. On your Home page, click the domain name you need.

  2. Click the Anonymous FTP icon.

  3. Adjust the settings as required and click OK. To switch off the anonymous FTP service, click the Switch Off icon in the Tools group.
