edited October 2012 in General

Oy vey, i'm searching for a FTP server: Windows Based Supports pipes/aliases (Homedir = C:\FTP - /backup = D:\FTP - /movies E:\FTP etc. etc.) NOT Filezilla Server.

Anyone knows something i don't know?

  • I think you can also just use Windows' inbuild feature to mount directories to other directories and thereby outsourcing the pipes/aliases support.

  • Long time ago, I'm using Bullet Proof FTP server and FileZilla :)

    This is a Consumer system (7) not 2008 (R2) - So no IIS

    @William - Windows 7 also contains IIS (just in single website mode) :)

    Nah, would use drftpd if i had that in mind (or GL on a linux box) :)

  • @William - according to this page - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731911.aspx - all editions of Win7 now support IIS. (Pretty sure this wasn't the case with Vista and it wasn't the case for XP, nice that MS have seen the light and include it with all editions now.)

  • @kiwidave - IIS is present in all Windows desktop versions since Windows 98 (it was called PWS)

    Have a look at SlimFTPd. It has it's own virtual file-system.

    @William Curious why no filezilla?

    Thanked by 1netomx
  • I've used filezilla, it's okay. :P

    The drives are network drives mounted in a drive letter, for some reason filezilla shows them as empty.

    Ahh, I thought maybe there was some security related problem I didn't know about :)

    That's strange you're having that problem, as I'm using it to make a network drive available and haven't ever had a problem. Although it's not a true network drive, it's a vmware shared folder (which My Computer refers to as a network drive)

  • @William - those network drivers are Windows or Linux? If Linux do not mount as SMB share, rather install NFS client and mount as NFS.

  • @William, Isn't it just the usual permission problem in FileZilla? It always shows empty folders if the service's account doesn't have the proper permissions.

    XLight is an excellent FTP server. Back when I helped someone run a Windows server, it was basically the only FTPd that didn't make me want to stab out my own eyes.

    @William: Yes, but then all other programs will have the same problems. Maybe you won't notice, because they default to the user account instead of the system. Just change the system account in the service properties.

    No thx.

    Working perfectly, except that it has no passive mode/port mode, so it is useless if you run a NAT... still searching thus.

  • @zsero: changing the user of the service account of Filezilla Server does not fix the issue: this appears to be a bug/limitation. I had a similar requirement and I solved by removing the need to write on a network share.
