More about FTP

Time and mind needed so keep trying . So first of all , find out if your IP(Internet Protocol) is static (not changing) or dynamic (change every time you log in).To check (do ) first consider the fact if you have a dial up modem. If you do, chances are about 99% out of 100% that your IP is dynamic. To make it static, just go to place like HTTP://WWW.MYFTP.ORG/ to register for a static IP address.

Then you need to get your IP. This can be
Going to Start -> Run -> winipcfg or and asking 'What is my IP?

After doing so, you'll need to download an FTP server client. I'd recommend G6 FTP server, Serv-U FTP or Bulletproof v2.15 all three of which are extremely reliable , and the norm of the FTP world.
You can download from search the above software at here upgrade version available.

Step by Step instruction for G6 FTP server

  • Setup -> General
  • type in your port # (default is 21)(recommend something unique or something a bit larger(ex:3069).This sets the amount of simultaneous maximu users on your sever at once performing actions- the more on at once , the slower the connection ).
  • Then
  • Launch with Windows
  • Activate FTP server on Start up
  • Put into tray on start up
  • Allow multiple instances
  • Show “ Loading....” Status at Start up
  • Scan drives at start up
  • Confirm Exit.

You can do what you want with these, as they are pretty self explanatory. The scan drive feature is nice, as is the 2nd and the last option.

  • From here, click the 'options' text on the left column.

To protect your server, you should check 'login check' and 'password check', 'Show relative path (a must!)', and any other options you feel you'll need.

  • After doing so, click the 'advanced' text in the left column. You should then leave the buffer size on the default (unless of course you know what you're doing ), and then allow the type of ftp you want.

Uploading and downloading is usually good, but it's up to you if you want to allow uploads and/or downloads. For the server priority, that will determine how much conventional memory will be used and how much 'effort' will go into making your server run smoothly.

  • Anti-hammering is also good, as it prevents people from slowing down your speed. From here, click 'Log Options' from the left column. If you would like to see and record every single command and clutter up your screen, leave the defaults.

But, if you would like to see what is going on with the lowest possible space taken, click 'Screen' in the top column. You should then check off 'Log successful logins', and all of the options in the client directry, except 'Log directory changes'. After doing so, click 'Ok' in the bottom left corner.

You will then have to go into 'Setup -> User Accounts' (or ctrl & u). From here, you should click on the right most column, and right click. Choose 'Add', and choose the username(s) you would like people to have access to.

  • After giving a name (ex: themoonlanding), you will have to give them a set password in the bottom column (ex: wasfaked). For the 'Home IP' directory, (if you registered with a static server, check 'All IP Homes'. If your IP is static by default, choose your IP from the list. You will then have to right click in the very center column, and choose 'Add'.

  • From here, you will have to set the directory you want the people to have access to. After choosing the directory, I suggest you choose the options 'Read', 'List', and 'Subdirs', unless of course you know what you're doing . After doing so, make an 'upload' folder in the directory, and choose to 'add' this folder seperately to the center column. Choose 'write', 'append', 'make', 'list', and 'subdirs'. This will allow them to upload only to specific folders (your upload folder).

  • Now click on 'Miscellaneous' from the left column. Choose 'enable account', your time-out (how long it takes for people to remain idle before you automatically kick them off), the maximum number of users for this name, the maximum number of connections allowed simultaneously for one ip address, show relative path (a must!), and any other things at the bottom you'd like to have. Now click 'Ok'.

  • From this main menu, click the little boxing glove icon in the top corner, and right click and unchoose the hit-o-meter for both uploads and downloads (with this you can monitor IP activity). Now click the lightning bolt, and your server is now up and running.

    Post your ftp info, like this:

-> (or something else, such as: 'f*p://')

-> User: *** (The username of the client)

-> Pass: *** (The password)

-> Port: *** (The port number you chose)

So make a FTP and join the FTP section

Listing The Contents Of A Ftp:

  • Listing the content of a FTP is very simple.
You will need FTP Content Maker, which can be downloaded from here:
    1. Put in the IP of the server. Do not put "ftp://" or a "/" because it will not work if you do so.
    2. Put in the port. If the port is the default number, 21, you do not have to enter it.
    3. Put in the username and password in the appropriate fields. If the login is anonymous, you do not have to enter it.
    4. If you want to list a specific directory of the FTP, place it in the directory field. Otherwise, do not enter anything in the directory field.
    5. Click "Take the List!"
    6. After the list has been taken, click the UBB output tab, and copy and paste to wherever you want it.

    • If FTP Content Maker is not working, it is probably because the server does not utilize Serv-U Software.

    • If you get this error message:
    StatusCode = 550
    LastResponse was : 'Unable to open local file test-ftp'
    Error = 550 (Unable to open local file test-ftp)
    Error = Unable to open local file test-ftp = 550
    Close and restart FTP Content Maker, then try again.

    Error messages:
