FTP Server

  Barnie Bears 19:23 19 May 2005

I work from home and need to receive heavy files, other than through email. I would like to have an FTP Server so I can give people the FTP details so they can upload their files to this so I can download from this. Does anyone know how I canset this up or where I can find out about this.

you just set up a ftp server on your local PC and ask people to upload to it.

You can control which directory they upload to and usename and password, etc. They cannot mess up with your PC.

There are many ftp server software, ws_ftp is very good one click here

ws_ftp server is expensive, but there are many cheap ones and even free ones
