FTP Setup - Best Practice
Posted on 2006-05-30
I am trying to setup an FTP server that I can use to transfer large videos, pictures & other files over. I want to be able to have various folders that are assigned to various people with passwords for each one.
Because I know that FTP isn't exactly secure, I am going to have it 100% separate from my AD network, so I want the adding & removing of usernames to be simple!
I am not a very experience Linux person, so I would prefer a simpler setup than that...but, if something is rather simple, I am willing to learn at the cost of fuller functionality or something of the sort.
Please let me know what suggestions you have & what has worked for people in the past.
Another feature I would be interested in would be the ability, through the FTP server, to do a "QoS" sort of scenario in order to prevent having it utilize all of our bandwidth. (because it is on our DMZ switch, it bypasses everything we have in place for that.
