FTP Daemon shutdown
Many users have
expressed a desire for a better way to share files within the company. For a
long time, we've run an FTP service on lucy. This service was accessible to the
outside world with no restrictions on access, and no provisions for logging user
activity. FTP was a security risk, and I have shut it down for this
All hope is not lost
though - you can still upload and download files. Please have a look here on
the staff website.
The interface is
very similar to the "html ftp listing" we used to provide. You can download
files by clicking on the hyperlink to the file (as you always have been able
to). The new functionality I have introduced is the form at the top of the page,
which will allow you to upload a file. Just hit the "browse" button to select
the file, and click the "Upload" button to transfer. There is no restriction on
file types or file size.
If you have any
questions, or problems using the tool, please let me know.
