Hey, everyone! Great to be back. I'm having a bit of a dilemma here. I'm running Ubuntu Server 9.10 and I'm looking to setup an FTP server. I have SSH running beautifully and it's accessible from any computer whether it be inside the network or coming in from the internet (provided you have the administrator username and password ). I've tried Proftpd and vsftpd and have failed miserably so far. I've read countless tutorials and have spent days researching and I've come up with next to nothing. I will say that I've gained a great deal of knowledge so far but not enough to solve my own problem. Here's where you geniuses come in ...
Which FTP server application do you think I should go with and how could I go about setting it up through my SSH connection?
My current setup is this:
- Ubuntu Server 9.10 with Fixed IP of 192.168.1.100
- 500GB Hard Drive
- SDA1 = 512MB ext2 /boot
- SDA2 = 2GB swap
- SDA3 = 20GB ext4 /
- SDA5 = 438GB ext4 /home
- One User (Username = administrator)
- Full SSH Capabilities
- IP Address to DNS provided by www.dyndns.org
- WRT120N Router with Remote Access and Port 22 Open
I basically want to set up a secure FTP server that anyone on the internal network can access as well as anyone from the internet (as long as they have a username and password). I want to setup a username and password for each user so that they all have read/write access to the same folder in my /home partition (I'll call it FTPSHARE). Any help on this would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you all very much in advance for any help!!!
