How can I setup my own FTP server.

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by AaronMcarthur, Mar 16, 2003.

  1. The other day a friend had his own FTP server setup, and all i did was type in ftp:// then the address in Internet Explorer, and i copied the files and there I had them.

    How can I setup my own FTP server where people can download from it?

    I have been using Serve-U FTP for about 2 years now without any trouble. It's easy to configure, and seems to let me do what I want.

    If your on dial up, or if you want to make it easier on people you may want to get a real URL.
    I use the service provided by http://www.no-ip.com/

    It's free, and they have software that updates your IP if your ISP changes it each time you log on.

    aaron macathur if you run an ftp. make passwords for all users and dont have anonymous looking.if you have pirated software or mp3s or whatever. anti-piracy people are on the look out for ftps with illegal content. if you do have illegal content and they find it... you know the drill.

    This is a tutorial with a router but it will still give you a basic set up for new user to kinda follow. Its really easy. If you need any personal help you can get me on msn messanger under xperties@comcast.net. Ive been running a dedicated server for years. Hope it helps.

    i use serve-u ftp 4.0 for my server.

    if you have a router, you'll need a service like dyndns.org to keep track of your wan ip (if you have cable).

    it's not very difficult.

    hahaha ... XP Abuser falls for the classic honey pot trap. You broke into a computer that is not on my network. Its seperated from everything else. You fool, while you did that I fed back on your connection and set up your email to spam everyone you have in your address book with the subject like that reads ' Hi I have a fetish for little dogs with big willys and I want to share my experiences with you... ' muhahahahaha
