I have a few LC III systems laying around, not doing a whole lot, and not really capable of doing a whole lot.  They do have some 1 GB drives in them, and was considering using them as FTP or file servers, and set them up with VNC so I could do whatever administration tasks I need to do without having a keyboard\mouse\monitor hook up.

Does anyone know of a cheap (primary) and good (secondary) FTP server that will run on System 7.5 (OR 7.6)?

Any other wise guy comments about the bottom of which lake these computer should be on will be ignored.

Whatever you do, dont throw those computers into a lake...heh. Old computers make great rinky dink servers and "terminals". Ever wanted to be able to check your email and surf the web from the kitchen....or the bathroom?..;P

Rumpus is a great FTP server for those machines. Back in the day that's what we all ran. You can find it at versiontracker.com

Thanks Weed!

I checked into it, Rumpus is running a little expensive ($250 for a 1 CPU license)... much more than I am willing to part with for these two antiques.  But, in reading about Rumpus, I saw some references to CrushFTP.  At $25, that's a pretty reasonable solution!

Oh, if you have any experience with Crush, I would love to hear what you thought of it!

Thanks Again,

Michael

Dont know much about crush but if it works, use it. The only real difference between FTP servers is speed and since youre working on old machines theyre not gonna be especially quick anyway so dont worry about it.
