FTP Outside Access

Recommended Posts

You have to set it in the FTP programs configuration, exempt it in Windows Firewall and any other firewall programs, and also set the FTP client to connect to it using that port. If the client does not have a place for you to put the port, use the port at the end of the address.

I have already made the exemptions in the firewalls, and I have put it in the URL in IE.

 

It either times out or says it can not connect. :)

I'm using IE because it is basic, and it rarely errors out on me.

I'm using the same one I've been using since I first made this thread, Quick 'n Easy FTP Server. :)

 

I have tired his suggestion, and it errored with a timeout error everytime. :)

 

As for the port in the program, I have already confirmed that it is there.

I don't think so, as I can access the sites with the http protocol on port 81.

 

As for entering my PC, you can try as you wish, but, I'm warned when there is an unauthorized entry outside of standard access ports. :)

 

In other words, use ports like 80, 81, etc., and you'll get in...

I don't think it would be "unauthorized" if we were to enter your PC to help you solve your problem.

 

Anyway, how are you accessing your FTP Server, via localhost (127.0.0.1), your LAN IP (if you have one) or your Internet IP address? If you're accessing it via your Internet IP, is your firewall blocking connections from your PC to the port you're running your FTP Server on?

I have tried ftp://us.defranks.net:port/, where the sub-domain as an A Record to my public IP address, the IP address that must be accessed to few data on my PC from another computer network.

 

I have also tried the localhost, the localhost IP, and my individual network IP address, and none of them have worked.

Why don't you use another FTP Server?

I have no idea... ^^'

 

I'll give it a shot in a few hours, when I'm not so tired. :)

 

I've been going through a VERY extensive script of a friends of mine, and correcting the errors and bug. After seven hours, I'm only half done...sad... :)

Try FileZilla or SlimFTPd. FileZilla = GUI while SlimFTPd = CLI, if I remember correctly.

 

Uniform Server has an old SlimFTPd plugin, I think you should still be able to use its config file with the latest version. Olajide tried FileZilla a while ago, it had some problems serving subst drives (in this case W:\), but well, that was a while ago :)

I personally dislike GUI programs/systems, so, I'm gonna try the SlimFTPd.

IT WORKED! SlimFTPd, the plugin worked! Thank you! ^^ I had to set it to use port 2001, but it worked! :)

 

Now, how do I set it up to have a secondary user//pass for the www/ folder for another user to use with a limited access?

Make sure you've updated your executables to the latest version.

 

To add a new user account, you'll have to modify and add these lines to your slimftpd.conf:

---------- START HERE ----------

# To make a new user, just replace and with the

# username and password of your choice. If no password is set, the user

# will be allowed to login without a password.

[/color]">

Password "
"

# The directive below will attach a local file system path to a virtual file system

# path. In this case, it will cause all files and folders in C:\ to appear

# in the server's root (/). If I remember correctly, you'll probably need to use

# "C:\\" (with the double quotes), if your folder contains spaces.

Mount / C:\

# The next directives set permissions on paths in the virtual file system.

# Valid permission tokens are Read, Write, List, Admin, or All, which indicates

# all four permission types. In the example below, we'll allow Read and List

# permissions for the root (/) and all folders in it. We'll also explicitly allow Write

# permission for the /upload folder only (which in this example exists at

# C:\\upload) and all folders beneath it.

# Finally, we'll explicitly deny access of any kind to the /private folder (which would

# be located at C:\\private).

Allow / Read List

Allow /upload Write

Deny /private All

# The D:\ below would appear in the server's root as /files.

# Do note that this folder will automatically allow Read and List permissions

# as it inherits the server root's permissions which are defined above.

Mount /files D:\

---------- END HERE ----------

 

Hope that helps (so we can finally close this thread, which is going to be 2 months old soon) :)

Of course they'll be left open. Olajide doesn't close threads when the problems in it are solved, so neither will I.

I could only get the server to work if I gave the second user full abilities, which I don't want them to have. If I denied them even the ability to delete, it would error, saying the user can not access the folder. :)

Could you post the config for your second user account here?

This is what is currently is.

<User "rath">
Password "admin"
Mount / W:/www/
Allow / All
</User>

 

This is what I first tried.

<User "rath">
Password "admin"
Mount / W:/www/
Allow /www/ Read List Upload Write
Deny /www/ Delete Rename
</User>

 

I also tried this one.

<User "rath">
Password "admin"
Mount / W:/www/
Allow / Read List Upload Write
Deny / Delete Rename
</User>

As I mentioned above, valid permission tokens are Read, Write, List, Admin, or All, which indicates all four permission types. In other words, All = Read Write List Admin.

 

The permission to upload and delete or rename files should be under Write and Admin respectively.
