CuteSecureFTP for corporate network.....Security issues?
Posted on 2006-05-15
I need to set up a fairly "secure" FTP site for my users (and partners) to use to transfer large files. It won't be used all that much, but I'm still a little paranoid. I'm thinking about buying CuteSecureFTP 3.1 to set it up. Basically, I'd just need to set up accounts for my internal domain users to post files, and then a couple "outside" users to transfer files here and there. Since we don't have a dedicated FTP server, I'd need to use one of my current servers....Maybe one running some real non-intensive services.....I was thinking I'd just create an FTP directory on a Data partition and then use a NAT rule to direct an external IP address into the internal IP address of this server......any suggesstions, advice, concerns over something like this? I've set up home FTP sites before, but never a corporate FTP site. Thanks in advance....
